In every season, we can trust Him. When an icy grip attempts to engulf us. . . we can trust Him. This journey through life will sometimes have blue skies, other times it will have its perils. Life is uncertain. . . downright fearful at times. In our finiteness, we can't see around the next bend, but our all-knowing, infinite God can. Trust Him, not your own limited line of vision, to direct your path. Trusting in the Lord moves us from the driver's seat of our life to the passenger seat. Relax. . . breathe. . . there's beauty to behold in every season of life. #JoyInTheJourney #Trust #Breathe
I wanted to share what's been on my heart this week.
Joy in the midst of pain, conflict, and sorrow seems to be an oxymoron. And yet the truth about the source of joy can be found in Psalm 16:11, “You will make known to me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever.”
Joy comes from the very presence of God. It doesn’t negate other emotions, it transcends them. The presence of God is joy. That place where His presence (joy) and our pain, conflict, sorrow intersect…that is peace, knowing He’s with us, He’s got it all under control.
I’m praying a Blessing for Joy over each of you for the coming weekend:
He is the God of peace. He is the God of joy. May Emmanuel, who came to be with us, be with you in every step of this weekend's journey. May you know He is present with you throughout each day. And may you reflect His joy in all you do. Go forth in joy. May this be your heart’s cry, “Lord, let me live so people will praise you.” Psalm 143:11
