Living in Grace: Joy

I can’t believe that it’s only Tuesday with the amount of unfortunate circumstances that have hit us in the face already this week. Being homeowners, parents, adults, and newly-named business owners all at once has been the biggest trial of our life thus far. We are trying to swim, but some days really do just feel like drowning. Some days are glorious and filled with the radiance of God’s promises. And some days, like today, make us feel like we’re praying on deaf ears, hoping for silly dreams, and wasting our time on faith that has not come through.

Today, we’re searching for joy. We’re confident that it’s there beneath all of this junk that makes us feel stressed &anxious. We come together & pray thick prayers hoping for peace, comfort, confidence, & joy. Joy that is wrapped in the power of Christ. Joy that comes from our God. Joy that is not circumstantial or changing. Joy that is eternal.

I want to lean into the glory & grace of the God who called us out and laid upon our hearts a glorious promise. I long to be drenched in the joy He longs for us. Because He loves us. Joy because of who Christ is.
