The other day I was Blessed to see the beauty of God's creation.
I was thankful and it made me smile.
It made me realize that even though things were bleak (at the time)
I needed to trust.
I needed to be reminded . . .
Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel.
I need to stand firm. No matter what happens. No matter
how bleak it seems.
And so, I have faith. I stand firm.
And I am Joyful . . .
May your day be filled with Joy
