Perseverance = Hope = Joy
Lately I’ve been reading a lot about Joy. It’s an aspect of living in the Spirit of God that is challenging to me. I don’t want to forever be the Negative Nancy. People who are filled with joy are something of a mystery to me, except that I know where they get their joy from :)
One thing this week that is standing out during my studies is that perseverance is our demonstration of the hope that we have in God. That hope begets ultimate Joy and causes us to live in the fullness of the Spirit.
Please pray for me that I would walk in Joy and live it out by persevering in hope.
P.S. I’m back! Sorry for the blog silence, the past few months have been SUPER busy. I’m looking forward to getting back into schedule though :)
