Joy in the midst of Sorrow pt. 2

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Well guys you will never guess what happened 3 days after my very first blog entry. My mother passed away unexpectedly. And as I sit here rereading my entry I have drawn strength. That Prrple was full of optimism and I need her to return. I have been in a bad place as of lately and I truly am struggling to find Joy in the midst of sorrow.
I know that I am a survivor. God made me who I am. These are things that I have had to remind myself of daily. They have become mantras for me to make it day by day. I would have never imagined that life would happen like this and so soon. But don't we all know that is how the enemy works. But this time I can not use the catch phrase, " the devil made me do it". I now believe God is allowing me to go through to see where my loyalties lie.
For a minute I was tripping. I was angry and saying and doing whatever I thought I was big and bad enough to do. Got me nowhere! LOL I am a child of the most High God and even though this may be seen as a loss, He sees His glory, my gain. What an awesome God we serve! He is my peace, my joy, my life. I need to feel His presence daily. And when you are trying to drink away your sorrows, you can't feel Him. Once you've tasted His goodness nothing else will suffice.
So I claim joy and success for all of us. You have to fight for what is yours. Be it weight loss or joy gain, fight the good fight of faith.....
