Hey Kings & Queens,
I hope you are healthy, cute & well! Lol I was reflecting on the phrase “the joy of the Lord is my strength” which comes from the verse Nehemiah 8:10.
Sometimes we get busy doing everything we need to do. Our plates are full! Some of us have kids, enrolled in school, work full time, have a crazy baby momma/baby daddy, we’re starting businesses, trying to invest in stocks, etc. & we get used to the busyness & routines of our full lives.
When our plates are super full, we can get weary & tired sometimes. Although we’re doing everything for everyone, we’re doing our best, & we may be right in the middle of purpose, buttttttt.....we still get overwhelmed!
Guess what? If you connect back to the vine (John 15) by praying, worshipping, journaling & tapping into God (however you do that), HE will renew your joy & strength!
Joy comes from HIM, not from the things.
Don't get me wrong, the things are nice! Taking care of business is nice. Feeding and teaching our kids is nice. The money, fame & stuff is very nice.
BUT, pure joy, peace, and happiness come from the Father!
I encourage you to join me this week by starting your day with worship, prayer & spending time in God's word.
Maybe start with 15 minutes if you can. If you can do more, 30 minutes- 1 hour.
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
Seek Him and He will fill your cup and give you your joy back. Joy that overflowing!
Please comment how your morning devotionals are going!
Of course leave prayer requests & comments.
Verses: James 4:8, psalm 16:11
Just a girl trying to explore my life through writing, while inspiring others (:
Everyone has a story. Do you agree? Well, I am stepping outside of the box to tell mine, so that YOU will be motivated and inspired to do the same! So, let's start. I was (& I still am) a young Christian when everyone else believed in everything & anything but Jesus. Imagine how awkward it was growing up as the "church girl". Yes, I was ACTUALLY called that in school. Lol. I am also the first one in my immediate family to attend a university right after high school in a different state, first to get a masters degree and definitely the first to explore entrepreneurship at the age of 25. I also lost BOTH parents before the age of 26. Wondering how I found my way to purpose in the midst of constant adversity? Stay tuned for my weekly blog posts. Step outside of the box and into purpose with me! Let's go!
