I am struck tonight by the joy that God brings into our lives.  So often we have no idea where things are headed and we continue on day to day doing what He asks of us and then we have these moments where we just experience joy.  I am so thankful for those moments of joy.  Sometimes months of hard work are followed by small moments of joy …. But what a welcome thing those moments of joy are.


I am thankful tonight for the gift of joy.  We have had many months (over a year actually when I think about it) of trusting and waiting on Him for some specific things.  Some of the tasks He has asked of us are now coming to fruition and some we still have to wait.  But tonight I rest in joy and peace knowing that He knows what is best in each and every situation.


May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Romans 15:13
