"If creation still obeys you, so will I." Joy and obedience. These two things seem to resonate with me in the past couple of days. How I was feeling the blues because of certain circumstances. But that's when I forgot just how important it is to turn it all around and look up. How theres a reason and a process taking place. How God is making everything beautiful in HIS own time. And how things coulda been worse yet I focus on the downsides placed upon me. Nah man, joy. To find joy in this is what I've been lacking. It's what I've forgotten. Because to find joy through this means to seek Christ. If Paul was able to find it bound in chains and expecting his death, I can find it too. And now I realize I can't let it beat me down and turn my focus away. I shouldn't stop what I'm doing, because what would that help? Man, to still obey even when it gets real... talk about heart. Shout outs to God for blessing me with this wisdom once again.
