Can sorrow open the doorway to joy? Tekoa Manning peels back the layers of despair to reveal the key to finding and defining joy. Our suffering is often producing the fruit of the Spirit. Jumping for Joy highlights Harriet Tubman, Nicholas James Vujicic, Joni Eareckson Tada, and the author’s own personal journey and the beautiful lessons learned. Joy is sitting right next to sorrow.
Those who sow in tears will reap with shouts of joy. He who goes out weeping, bearing a trail of seed, will surely return with shouts of joy, carrying sheaves of grain.
–Psalm 126:5-6, BSB
