To be honest, this afternoon I struggled with my new focus of “choosing to be joyful.” I didn’t really want to be joyful. I wanted to be grumpy. I fought back tears most of the afternoon. I felt desolate, alone and empty. Ever have one of those kind of days?
After his appointment, I sat through Zach’s soccer practice, and enjoyed the breeze coming through the windows of my car. It really was a beautiful day. I’m glad I had grabbed my Bible on the way out the door this afternoon…a peace overcame me as I read some of Isaiah as I sat in the car.
Even though I struggled to be joyful today, I clinged to the One who never changes…the One who is never too busy for me, or never makes me feel inadequate. I’m never alone with Jesus. I needed Him today. Maybe joy will come easier tomorrow as I spend the day at Mission of Hope…that’s usually the case for me. The only way I can have true joy is through Jesus anyway!
