Seeing the Bigger Picture
My friend Aimee posted this yesterday on her blog. It really spoke to me. You see I have been in a "rut" so to speak. As I watched it ... and realized that "MY" problems are really not problems at all.
Also reading over at Ann's about LIFE....
Life is not hard because you're doing something wrong: Life is a battle. Put on your armor.
Life is battle and the weak and the weary have this weapon: The JOY of the Lord is my strength.
This day to day stuff ... gets the best of me.... and I find myself in the hard eucharisteo... counting it all JOY~ asking Him to wash over me... with His peace. Repeating like Ann, the JOY of the Lord is my Strength.
This JOY keeps showing up in the most crazy places....
Our family watches Castle... I know probably not the best show. One of the main characters is Kate Beckett. At the end of the show last night she said
"even on the worse days their is the possibility of JOY"
So even in the hard places.... on the worse days.... HIS JOY is still there....
