7. The Joy Prescription Podcast - Proverbs 31:25 - Look to the Future with Confidence

Season 1, Ep. 7

Hello, Dear One, Dr. Cynthia Libert here with your weekly Joy Prescription. Today, I’ll be reading  Proverbs 31:25.  “She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.”

How do you feel when you think about the future? Are you expectant and joyful? Or do you feel gripped with anxiety and fear?

Proverbs 31 shows us a godly woman that looked to the future - with all of its unknowns - and laughed!  How could she respond so carefree and confident? It wasn't about what her future held, it was about who was accompanying her into her future.

Dear One, may you rest joyfully today in the experience of your salvation. May you have full confidence that God is with you - your Heavenly Father is your companion now, and as you step into your future. God’s power and love is steadfast and beyond measure. His nature is kind and merciful. He is the one accompanying YOU into your future.

May the Peace of Christ be with you.  

I invite you to tune in next week for another Joy Prescription devotional and also on the second Tuesday of each month when my co-host, Brooke Jack and I, take a deeper dive to explore topics at the intersection of Brain Health, Lifestyle Medicine & Christian Spirituality.

We’d love to hear from you! 

You can ask us questions about anything health and/or spirituality related, and we’ll do our best to answer you on the podcast. Send your questions via email to or by calling our question line at 828-412-0599.
