Thoughts : Are We Filled with Joy?

8 September 2013No Comment


After facing series after series of challenging and mentally exhausting attitudes from our second and third kiddos in the past weeks, this verse reminds me once again, … that a cheerful heart, joy, comes from within.

It’s not dependent on what happens to us.

It flows out from within.

Because God has firstly given that joy to us.

The question I now ask myself is, do have I have that joy, ie. despite all the tough situations I’ve been facing at home?

Oh I pray that other than the extra wisdom, strength and patience I need in parenting my kids, … may God shower me that parenting joy too, everyday.

Have a blessed Sunday, everyone.
