I love the greater joy that God gives us. It's the kind of joy that comes from knowing and trusting whom He is. Joy defeats discouragement and it is deeply seated within our Christian faith because although the world's happiness will fade with time, God's children will be happy forever.
The hard and messy part is what he gives me to get me ready for the things to come. I know things are coming Im just sitting back and waiting. When the time comes it will all have been worth the wait. Like the song says Joy cometh in the morning!
