God Brings Us Joy
In the last few weeks I have been feeling that my life has been a bit chaotic. It was the end of the school year, so lots of final paperwork, reports and last minute things to complete. I was also in the midst of purchasing a home, and trying to figure all of that out. And trying to balance out family, projects and everything else that was happening.
I started to feel extremely overwhelmed. I felt like the entire world's weight was on my shoulders. But it was because I was trying to do everything on my own and I thought I had to deal with it by myself.
But what I failed to see was God's hand moving in every part of my life. I only saw my own struggles and stresses.
It wasn't until I searched for God, did I find the joy in all of it. God is the only one who can calm us, bring us joy and fill us hope about our unknown futures.
When we go through stressful moments, it's so easy to internalize and not seek out God and the joy that He brings. It's easier to allow ourselve to get overwhelmed.
But we have to seek God in those moments of chaos, because when we do, we will find the joy. Even when things are hard, and we don't have the strength to keep going, we have to seek the Lord, because He will provide us with strength, hope and joy.
Praying for you.
In Christ, Diana
