This looking for joy everyday is really about looking for all the ways God shows up in my life, all the ways He is Immanuel, God with us, all the time. I know I don’t truly realize all the God moments in my life, nor am I fully aware of His presence and work in my life at every minute in my day. However, the more purposeful I am in looking for joy, the more aware I am of God’s presence and His love for me.
My hope is that my focus will grow and that my concentration on God will overcome all the stuff this world throws at me, to the point that the negative junk just becomes secondary , barely noticeable. This might take a lot longer than 100 days, yet, I am hopeful. Do you want to join me in this challenge to find joy in every day?
