Joy and prayer have been my two main focuses the past few weeks. I haven’t stopped praying for the JOY of the Lord, and the contentment only He can bring. The last few weeks have been just bleh; but I haven’t stopped seeking joy.
In our society joy’s a hard thing to find. Our culture is SO caught up in the lies of this world, and it’s a dark place. The world is yelling so many conflicting things in the ears of the poor people who will listen–who will secumb to their lies. Yelling things like;
‘You’ll never measure up.’
‘You’re too fat.’
‘You’re too skinny.’
‘You’ll never be anything’.
People believe these lies, and I say lies because that’s EXACTLY what they are. Jesus says in Psalm 139:13-14, ‘For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mothers womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.’ As the Psalm says, YOU are fearfully AND wonderfully made. That leaves no room for Satan’s lies. You are perfect just the way you are. If you believe his lies, he will steal your joy! Don’t let him do that!
Pray for the joy of the Lord, and don’t ever stop. He will provide. Always. No matter what. ❤️
