A Joyful Heart

Image

Lately I have found myself reflecting over the events of the last few months.  Thinking about those moments where God brought a person into my life in order for me to have a certain experience.  Each of those moments he used to prepare me for a future only he can see.  Those times had moments of joy, but also it was filled with frustration and anguish.  Too often I was wanting my will in the situation, not God’s will.  I am so thankful that God does not answer certain prayers.  God has shown me time and time again that he wanted me to wait with a joyful heart.  Periodically I would have to think about whether I was waiting for a savior to change a circumstance or waiting for a savior to change me.  Change isn’t always easy.  Change is necessary in order to grow into the person you are meant to be. It has taken a great deal of insight in order to get to know the woman that is in me.  To break free from all those limiting beliefs and fears.  To allow myself to trust in his timing and have absolute FAITH.  I often found myself losing faith because I was focusing on the wrong thing.  I was not seeing the blessing.  When I started focusing on the blessing, I found that what came pouring out of my heart was complete JOY.  Joy in having a God who loved me enough to change me.  Joy for all the blessings that are everywhere and most of all are in every one.  Joy in what God is bringing into my life and what he is removing.  Joy in this season.  What I discovered was that a joyful heart will always find a way to not only let love in, but also be able to give love too.  Let’s all BE JOYFUL!!
