It is easy to lose joy in the midst of worry and fear. Worry about the timing of our move to South Carolina. Fear that our house won’t sell as quickly as I would like. Worry about how the move will affect my little business.
Notice anything about those statements? Yep, it’s all about me. How changes will affect my comfort and my control.
So, how do I experience joy in the midst of it all? Psalm 16:11 says that God will make known to me the path of life; that in His presence is fullness of joy. Can I rest in that? I will try and I am sure I will fall back into worrying.
But I can climb right back into His presence, knowing that He will make the correct path known to me.
Do you think joy and happiness are the same thing?
