Andrea from The Flourishing Mother has recently wrapped on a series of posts called Fighting For Joy. While it does take some time to read through, it really is worth it.
I know that there are days **I** really struggle with joy.
I mean, I have a WONDERFUL husband (who loves me and his children and works hard for us everyday) and I have four adorable children (who while they do have their moments of disobedience really and truly are a blessing). I serve a God who loves and cares for me (He knows me so well he knows the numbers of hairs on my head - however grey they might be).
So why or what do I have to keep me from experiencing God's joy to the fullest? Read Andrea's posts. I now have a starting place as to why and more importantly WHAT to do now.
