Despite many things that happened over the last couple of days that have been unfortunate/stressing/downright snarky, I refuse to let my joy be robbed. For it is my identity in Christ alone that brings me strength, joy…hope.
I won’t lie – I do feel as though a lot of things have cascaded upon me at once during this Christmas season. I won’t detail them – you can contact me privately if you want to know specific details – but I know that they have caused at least fits of angst and anguish.
Nevertheless, I am stronger because of these things and I know that, truly, God’s grace is sufficient for me. I know that His love surpasses all. I also know that I have truly wonderful friends – people who have continually watched out for me and loved me. I know that God has provided immensely for me and romances me, especially in the depths of my sometimes broken heart.
