lately, life has not looked the way i expected it should or hoped it would. i've been plagued by uncertainty and anxiety about my future and my current situation. i know my hope isn't in the lord, and i don't know how to put it there. i'm unhappy and i haven't known how or where to find joy. .
through all of this, i've been asking God what to do. he reminded me "the joy of the lord is your strength" (neh 8:10). so. everyday i'm going to find 3 things i'm thankful for/where i find joy. because even if i don't FEEL joyful in the hard moments, focusing only joy reminds me that there is a light at the end of this tunnel. today, i'm doing it on instagram. tomorrow, 🤷🏻♀️. .
1. my mom. she has surprised me in this season with her support and empathy and i'm so beyond thankful.
2. in a few days, i'm taking my FIRST adult vacation thanks to my generous friend @cmprickett.
3. i love the little community i've found at first umc lawrenceville. .
here's to finding strength in joy. 💪🏻🎉
