“I press on…forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead” Philippians 3:12-13
I’ve been in a rut. A bitter, angry, borderline depressed rut.
Luckily, while in this crevice I’ve had support and bug and bear kisses to keep me from lying down in it.
I’m physically tired. But I’m also tired of not being happy. I firmly believe I get to choose happiness (or not) regardless of my circumstances and countless irritations pressed in daily.
Happiness is a choice, joy is a choice.
“True joy is not something that can be conjured up or willed. Joy exists apart from our control, we simply choose whether or not to enter in to it…joy is not a momentary pleasure…joy is a fruit of Gods spirit” Sarah Matheny
joy is a gift given freely but we must choose to accept it (Galatians 5:22)
so today, “I press on…forgetting those things (bitterness, irritations, selfishness etc) and I reach forward to this things which are ahead.
And so many good things are ahead.
Life is changing, its been changing and I press on trying my hardest to not let the bad, hard, inappropriate define my day.
I am looking forward to, I am entering into Joy, with confident assurance in the goodness of the Lord- faith and hope in what I cant yet see, but already know. (Hebrews 11:1)
