Philippians 2:18
Whatever you may suffer only concludes in joy! 

The devil wants to steal your joy, you know why?
Because the joy of the Lord is your strength!

One of the differences between Christians and the world is that we can have joy in the midst of difficulty.  We know that the creator of the universe is FOR US.  He is on our side and gave us the victory!  We are more than conquerors through Him who strengthens us!
In the Mirror Bible it gives a brief description under Philippians 2:18, the description says, "Joy is a bold declaration, in the face of severe danger and suffering, that contradiction does not define us or have the final say in our lives.  We know that whether we live or die, our message is unstoppable and that it is conquering the world."
The message of grace is conquering the world!  Keep fighting the good fight of faith, keep pressing towards the goal.  Keep running!  Whatever you are going through it will conclude with JOY.
The joy of the Lord is your strength!
Psalms 30:5 says, "For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but joy comes in the morning."

The joy of the Lord is yours in the midst of whatever you are going through.  Rejoice, you have the victory.
Go out today knowing the message you carry is conquering the world!
