Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory. 1 Peter 1:8and you see, I get this “image” of how things should be. How my children should act/behave. How my husband should lead How the house should look How the finances should run How “together” I should appear and well, when reality sets in I become anxious (internally) and it eats. away. at. my. joy! I think perhaps I have un-officially adopted ~Joy~ as one of my words for 2012! Because even in the midst, I know there is joy, and I cling to it.
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him. Psalms 126:5-6So go ahead, weep. Knowing that you are sowing seed in your joy. It is there. In Him. Linking up 2/9/12 @ Thought provoking Thursday!
