I ran across a verse during a Bible study that has me rethinking the title and focus of The Joy War. The Bible study was written at my church by ladies in leadership.
So for now you are in grief; but I will see you again, and [then] your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take away from you your [great] joy, John 16:22 (AMP).
As you can see, no one will take our joy away. So what is this war about?
