It’s been two weeks since I completed my 💯 day journey towards joy. I can honestly say that my heart is full of joy as an underlying current of each moment, no matter what is happening on the surface. There has been a change in me because of my intentional search for joy. I am more aware of that undercurrent of joy and it inspires me to fight for it and fight against all that might otherwise defeat me.
This isn’t to say life has been easy, quite the contrary. In fact, the last few weeks have been some of the toughest I’ve ever faced, with physical exhaustion, emotional stresses, being letdown by people, and financial challenges. God truly has been my “ever-present help in times of trouble ” and I can’t help but feel joy in my spirit as I experience His presence in the midst of troubles.
