True Joy

These are some of my favorite joys right now:

-writing encouragement notes knowing that the words I speak into people's lives are given to me for a purpose
-looking back and realizing how the Lord has shown His goodness
-being loved on physically and spurred on in faith by some of my heroes in the faith who are some of the most godly, excellent women I have ever known
-seeing how the Lord has used my encouragement to bring life, fullness, and significance to souls
-being intentional about watching the Spirit's activity all around me
-having the inner courts of my soul stirred by a living, active Creator
-gaining rich knowledge into prayer
-learning ways to guard and tend my heart and turn it toward Heaven
-spending lots of time pleading in intercession
-feasting and delighting completely in the peace of my Lord
-learning what true joy is all about
-having "wells" where my soul is fed and ministered to
-knowing that I am a child of God, that I am blessed, and that I am highly favored
-coming to cling to my High Priest

I am immeasurably blessed. The Lord has been so faithful and so good. I am thankful.
