So here it goes
Finding Joy has been a struggle for me in the past year. So many times the past steals the Joy of the moment away.
I seem to live in a state of "if only" the my Joy would last.
But in these times I know that I am trying to have lasting Joy through my own works and decisions not His.
True Joy can only come through the one I turn to last. When the fires finally consumed everything then I turned to him.
But it is still a struggle to remind myself to turn to the Joy Bringer in all things
Through God I will have lasting Joy, through him the past will no longer rule my present.
