Last night we read this from Sarah Young’s devotional Jesus Calling.
“Learn to laugh at yourself and at the world. Instead of getting bogged down in the mud of worry and fear, laugh and be happy because I am by your side. Just as parents delight in the laughter of their children, so I delight in hearing you laugh. I feel happy when you trust Me enough to enjoy your life.
Don’t let worrying over troubles-especially things that haven’t even happened yet-keep you from laughing. Live each day to its fullest by being full of My Joy. That doesn’t mean you won’t ever have any problems. It doesn’t mean you won’t ever be sad. But it does mean that when troubles come, you can still have Joy because the Creator of the universe is right there beside you-helping you with your problems.
So learn to laugh at your troubles…and you’ll find that they aren’t nearly so troublesome.”
My takeaway…”Live each day to its fullest by being full of My Joy.” I wanna be a fun Mama! But I so easily get bogged down, overwhelmed.
Fill me, Lord, with Your joy, so I can live life to its fullest!
