And again I say, Rejoice! Philippians 4:4
Enter into the joy of your Lord, not just at the end of the journey, My child, but even now, amid the shadows and rough places of the road, there is joy for you if you will abandon the burden of sadness. I call for a joy-filled band--a people who know My heart. Yes, the world still lies in the corruption of rebellion, and millions of souls are in pain. Those who seek and find and follow the Narrow Way are still few. But they can be a joyful company--singing the songs of ultimate victory and daily help for every need. Enter into My joy, My beloved.
from Echoes of Eternity - Listening to the Father Vol. 1 by Hal M. Helms
I loved the reflection for today and I ask you what are you choosing.......to be a member of the "joy-filled band" or do you choose to carry the "burden of sadness"? While my life is not perfect or always happy.........I have found that even in the worst of times if I hand over my sadness and troubles to the Lord and join the "band" I feel at peace.
I'll be back later (hopefully today) to share the project I worked on this weekend. Gotta go get ready for my niece's quilting class.
