Welcome to Joy For My Journey Ministries Page

Life, as we know it, is not always easy.  There are times when we just cannot comprehend the why's, how's, what if's or when's of every day struggles.  Grief is often "hushed" and not a subject that is easily spoken of for many reasons.  Loosing a loved one is difficult; loosing a child is unbearable at times it seems.  Through my own insecurities, questions and challenges following the death of our oldest daughter, I found myself, at times, wrapped into a hopeless situation as I saw it.  I felt the more I cried out to God the farther He was from me.  I felt family and friends didn't care to understand my pain or even give me time to share my pain with them.  In my thinking, as long as I appeared fine then all was well to them.  After years of isolating myself and drowning myself in this pain that we know as grief, I realized there had to be a better way.  As a Christian, a minister of the Gospel, I had heard all the scriptures read, sang all the songs, and listened to all the devotions but deep within me that just wasn't enough.  Then one day, "Finally", my heart cried out, I found JOY in my situation on this journey we call life.  My prayer is that through this ministry God has entrusted us with, that lives will be forever changed into the love, hope, peace and joy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


With Much Love,
Elizabeth Stewart

Stand Firm In 2017 

Good morning to all of you!  We are blessed that God has allowed us to see a brand new year!  Wow...how good God has been to us all!

Over the past few days God has reminded me that Satan would "love to sift us as wheat."  It was during my time of mediation that I was reminded that Jesus is interceding for you and I.  It is our choice as to whether we stand firm in knowing that God has us covered or crossing our arms in a defeated manner.  I'm not sure about you but as for me I choose to STAND FIRM!  Who will…Read more
