Day 10 A- Z Challenge
When I hear the word, Joy, the first thing I thought of was the song..".I got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart." Joy a feeling of great happiness. BUT when life throws you a curveball, finding joy is difficult...it doesn't even exist.
The scriptures tell us to rejoice in our suffering. But when living in that moment..I didn't rejoice and to be honestly I don't rejoice now.
I was reading an article that compared a rainbow to suffering. Water represents our suffering we are experiencing and the rainbow represents the stages of grief. We all know that when light passes through the droplets of water a rainbow is formed. Light represents God. When suffering joy may be the smallest color in the rainbow. The promises of the rainbow from God; HOPE. I believe God will restore my joy to the big color of the rainbow. God tells us to trust him; he wipes the droplets of water from our face.
