Sometimes life breaks us. Sometimes we find ourselves lost in all the hurt and confusion we have to live with every day. Sometimes it feels as though we cannot possibly endure another moment. And sometimes we find ourselves so low that we literally weep through the night. King David was familiar with and spoke often of this pain. However, he also knew of a greater hope—a hope that has the ability to lift our spirits as we wait for the coming joy in the morning.
Joy in the Night shares ten of Don Rodney West’s most popular sermons, which he has presented around the world. From Jamaica to Mexico to New York, Pastor West provides the background information as to the location of his sermon and the reason for choosing each topic before diving into the sermon. Written with humor and compassion yet not lacking in seriousness and truth, Pastor West delves into ten different concepts, all of which reflect not only the joy we may experience in the morning but also the joy we can find in the night in the midst of our trials.
|Don West has garnered extensive missionary experience in his work as an evangelist in his homeland of Jamaica, as well as Central America, China, and the United States. Along with his wife Tracia and children, Tajhicia, Trace, Acia Rhodni, and Don Rodney, Jr., he currently resides in Anchorage, Alaska, where he serves as the pastor of the Anchorage Community and Spanish Seventh-day Adventist Churches.|

TEACH received the following review:
"'Joy In The Night' is relevant in its content and restorative in its appeal. Throughout the chapters of this modern masterpiece, Don presents life changing and faith building messages. Using his personal acquaintance with life’s vicissitudes as a launching pad, he demonstrates how depending on the Word of God and believing in Him by faith, can bring about healing of the soul, when it is experiencing the 'nights' of life. The principles he espouses are implicitly based upon the Word of God. They are potent and practical in their application, and if used, can bring about transformation, restoration, and peace with God. So, if you desire the peace and presence of God during your 'nights', 'Joy In The Night' can provide some needed inspiration."
