As I sit and reflect on life, I am overcome by the joy of the Lord. What has changed in me? Could it be daily listening to scripture as I fall asleep? Last night I started with Psalm 10 and when I woke up it was 2:30am and Psalm 132 was being read.
Could it be constant reflection on God’s goodness to me and my thankfulness to Him? I have a beautiful wife and four wonderful kids. I have a dream job. And I have wonderful friends I work with. Home community and church are going well. I am just so thankful.
There is much more to add, but I will simply say this – despite circumstances there is much joy in the Lord.
