I like to think I'm a fairly joyful person...most days. I have no expectation that my life should be easy, smooth or even "happy." But I do believe God's Word when I'm told that joy is possible for me.
but, on a day like today when I have unanswered questions and problems I'm not sure how to solve, I have to ask.....How?
Take a look at Isaiah 55!
If I choose to believe that only He can satisfy. (v 1-2) If I choose to believe that He hears me and always keeps His promises. (v 3-4) He has made me splendid! (v 5) He will let me find Himself and He will show me mercy. (v 6-7) He knows my situation and myself better than I do and always sees the big picture. (v 8-9) He has given me purpose and will help me reach His goals for my life! (10-11) He will bring me joy and peace! (v 12)
I'm smiling harder already!
