From waiting comes JOY

Its in the quiet moments after waiting that I continue to find joy in this journey.

The Joy of knowing others are holding me up in prayer when I can can't hold myself up
The joy and pleasure of praying for others
The privilege to stand in the gap for the needs and brokenness of my friends, loved ones, and strangers

The simple joy of a cup of a coffee delivered to my bedside
Sunshine out the window
The end of school (no more homework) and beginning of summer
and the promise that Joy comes in the morning

With my eyes fixed up and my mind focused on Joy,
The days get a little shorter, the evenings a bit more peaceful and I slowly begin to rest.

And its only then that I can begin to look to another day and know that I can do this!
