just joy

the God that chose me before the beginning of time, pursues me over and over again.

if that isn't reason to be joyful, i don't know what is!

i've always felt DEEPLY. and it will always be a part of who i am. so this world, and it's brokenness will always be the way the enemy tries to take me down. sometimes he'll succeed in some of the battles. but he'll never WIN the war.

this weekend, my God pursued my heart...while i was running 12 miles on saturday morning He whispered to me...while i went about my busy day on saturday He reminded me what was important...while i had to choose which activity of my kids to go to, He made it clear...he gave me the sweetest few hours on saturday night full of fun and lightheartedness with our whole family by a fire in our driveway. sunday, He continued to teach me and challenge me while, at the same time, filling me with joy that could ONLY be Him.

He is so good. He just is.

if you don't know Him, seek out who He is. because there is nothing else like Him. {ask me, if you don't know where to seek Him!}
