|It was 116 degrees with the heat index this day.|
I'm no ostrich with my head in the sand. I've raised six children and I'm all too familiar with the trials and tribulations that go along with that! But I'm also aware that joy goes along way towards making life worth living! I'm not speaking of happiness here. I don't believe that we can attain constant happiness. But I feel that we can hold onto a quiet inner joy, no matter the trials life brings, if we understand that God sees us as valuable and precious and that He celebrate us throughout our life's journey!
|My dad's joy comes from knowing that he is a child of the King.|
Do you have that quiet still knowing that your strength comes from Him in all things? Are you taking Him with you throughout your days? Have you found that joy springs out of you even in the midst of tough times? I think I'm getting there. I'm "doing life with Him" and it makes all the difference in the world. My joy overflows and I'm at peace with my life, even if it goes from 100 to 50 degrees over night!
