Juggling with Joy!


I feel like this!  Each item is an issue in my life...

  • Fear of this or that
  • Family divisions
  • Questions, etc
  • Day to day issues
  • Problems...
But I feel ridiculously joyful!  I can't help smiling!  Nothing is different.  There are still problems and issues that need resolution.  Nothing is different - IN THE NATURAL - But, IN THE SPIRITUAL, I just know God is up to something.  He is working things out together for my good because I love and trust Him.  His word says so.  
Rom 8 v 28:  And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

My encouragement to you is, in the 'natural' things may look the same, but, in the 'Spiritual', God is moving on your behalf. - BELIEVE IT and be JOYFUL!  Why?  Because the joy of the Lord is your strength (Neh 8 v 10)

God bless
Tracy

  4. I'm with you on this one too. "Life" gets us down but we have better things to be joyful about. A lesson I have been learning this past week.

  5. Amen...God is ALWAYS up to something GOOD! Unfortunately, I don't always keep this truth in front of me, and soon my "joy juggling" turns into a shower of trials/tribulations raining down on me. Gotta keep our eyes on God...stay focused on His goodness and His faithfulness...yes, indeed!

    Thanks, Tracy!

  8. Joy is what colors your whole personality Tracy; your humor and positive thinking is what inspires and connects so many of us together! :)

    God fills us with so much joy, and He teaches us that joy is a duty, and something we should plant and harvest. :)

    Blessings and joy back to you! xxoo

  10. Don't you just love it when you can sense God working? Kind of a nervous excitement--wondering when and how. One of my biggest faults is knowing just how God SHOULD work situations for my good. And each time I find His way is so much better.

  16. Thank you for sharing at "Tell Me a Story". Yes, we do havr problems, but we rejoice not because of them, but knowing that God is with us IN them. He does make the difference even when nothing else changes.

  17. Yes, when our lives are filled with "challenges", knowing we can count on Him to bring the Truth to the surface and keep us in the palm of His hands, we can keep moving forward and worshiping Him at all times. We must count on that instead of being "tricked" into depression and discouragement. Thanks. What you said is true. Period.

  18. I used that very scripture too...in HIs joy we become strong...we are not strong and then find joy. blessings to you~

  19. Romans 8:28 ... yes. Speaks straight into my heart.

  20. Learning how to look at the world with Spirit Glasses - that is a hope and beauty thing! Like my reading glasses which I keep misplacing even when they're on top of my head (much to my sons' amusement) - I sometimes misplace my Spirit Glasses - but life with them has become a hope and beauty thing!!!! Wishing you blessings this week - joyful, hope-walked blessing!

  21. Love this Tracy... "Nothing is different - IN THE NATURAL - But, IN THE SPIRITUAL, I just know God is up to something." Amen... He is indeed always up to something, so we can absolutely be joyful... waiting for that "something" to be revealed! Love the way you encourage me :)
