Something in the Water

Last night I was watching Carrie Underwood singing "Something in the Water" and I heard the words
...Got Joy In My Heart...
and I was jolted into the realization that I haven't been feelin' my Joy lately.
That JOY is my most favorite part of my relationship with God. It makes my days happy and my life content.  
And instead I have been crabbin' to God that my art isn't selling, that I am fat and can't stick to a diet and I want a new house and it isn't happening.  Now, I KNOW He will provide, and that trust will never be broken.  He just isn't doing it MY way and fast enough apparently, hence, NO JOY!
What an idiot I am.  How many times do I have to learn that God does it better than me and in ways that are greater than my ways??  He has never let me down yet.
So today, I am determined to get my Joy back. And shine God's light for all to see. I will wait with anticipation for the ways He will bring all my dreams to fruition.  Why the heck do I want to mope around in my pity party when I can wait in joyful anticipation of what surprises God has coming my way.  I LOVE Surprises!!
I will keep you posted.   

Joy is a heart posture


"Something In The Water"
He said, "I've been where you've been before.
Down every hallway's a slamming door.
No way out, no one to come and save me.
Wasting a life that the Good Lord gave me.

Then somebody said what I'm saying to you,
Opened my eyes and told me the truth."
They said, "Just a little faith, it'll all get better."
So I followed that preacher man down to the river and now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger

There must've been something in the water
Oh, there must've been something in the water

Well, I heard what he said and I went on my way
Didn't think about it for a couple of days
Then it hit me like a lightning late one night
I was all out of hope and all out of fight

Couldn't fight back the tears so I fell on my knees
Saying, "God, if you're there come and rescue me."
Felt love pouring down from above
Got washed in the water, washed in the blood and now I'm changed
And now I'm stronger

There must be something in the water
Oh, there must be something in the water

And now I'm singing along to amazing grace
Can't nobody wipe this smile off my face
Got joy in my heart, angels on my side
Thank God almighty, I saw the light
Gonna look ahead, no turning back
Live every day, give it all that I have
Trust in someone bigger than me
Ever since the day that I believed I am changed
And now I'm stronger

There must be something in the water (amazing grace)
Oh, there must be something in the water (how sweet the sound)
Oh, there must be something in the water (that saved a wretch)
Oh, there must be something in the water (like me)
Oh, yeah

I am changed (I once was lost)
Stronger (but now I'm found)
(was blind but now I see)
