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!!
