Unwavering Joy

“Learn to enjoy where you are on the way to where you’re going.” –Joyce Meyer

What delays your joy?  Do you have to graduate college first?  Land a higher paying job?  Find the right person?  Have kids?  Have grandkids?  Retire ASAP?  You see if you’re not careful then you can become so hyper focused on where you’re trying to get to that you fail to enjoy the journey along the way.  Apostle Paul learned to find contentment in whatever state he was in (Phil. 4:11-13).  Ask God to help you find the balance between contentment and ambition so that you live in unwavering joy.

…for the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10, NIV).
