Joy

In my younger years, I’m certain that I took waking up in the morning for granted. I was young. I had not experienced some  things. I made decisions based on what I thought I knew. Fortunately, I had parents to advise me as I made those decisions, some of the advise I took and some I didn’t. Needless to say I made some mistakes along the way, but I survived by the grace of God. And that’s what it’s about, finding joy in the sheer graciousness of God, that was always transparent even in the midst of my mistakes. Circumstances are part of the journey. They are results of the decisions we make. The good news is that our decisions only define us in the moment, they don’t determine our future. So waking up is clearly a joy not to be taken for granted. It is a blessing by the transparent grace of God because we have another opportunity to strive towards all that God has called us to be. My Lord what a morning!
