Missing Link to Your JOY & PEACE

Posted on July 20, 2012 at 5:30 AM
Missing Link to YOUR Joy & Peace #BloggingontheGO Romans 15:13 NIV May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Greetings! BlogFam, There is a reason why you are moping and restless devoid of joy and longing for peace. Its not all in your mind. Its not all somebody else's fault. And its not just because x, y, or z happened to you. Its time for a moment of deep reflection because your joy and peace are fruits of the Holy Spirit that should abound regardless of your situations or circumstances. Your joy and your peace grow out of your soul's connection to the divine and if you are feeling as if your joy and your peace are nonexistent or at least waning, then perhaps today is a great day to just check your connection to the divine. For as you TRUST in God, the God of hope will fill you with all joy and peace. This is what we read on today. May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. So, my friends, how is your connection? Seriously, do you have joy unspeakable and a peace that surpasses all understanding? Or has this time in your life felt like the complete opposite of what Paul prays for the church in this verse? If you are struggling in this area of your life, you are not alone! And I do not mean to belittle your feelings or to say anything to keep you in that head space. I do want to encourage you by saying that there are other brothers and sisters whose connection to the divine seems to be out of range. You are not the only one who may be feeling out of sync in prayer, praise, worship, or fellowship. You are not the only one; but more than the reality that there are others in our BlogFam, in your small group, at your church, and other places who are experiencing similar feelings, there is a solution. There is hope from the God of all hope that this too shall pass and you can pass over, pass through, without passing out over this. The God of hope, possibility, revival, and renewal will indeed fill you with all joy and peace AS YOU TRUST IN GOD. Friends, God is available and willing to help you through this and pull you out of this. You are not alone because our God loves you and is present with you and if you choose to trust God, I also pray.... May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. And because of your connection to the God of hope you will also overflow with hope. Wow! Have you ever thought about what it means to live your life overflowing with hope? Hope is the feeling that what is wanted can be had and that everything will turn out for the best. BlogFam, by the power of the Holy Spirit, you can OVERFLOW with hope. You can be filled with all joy and peace and overflow with hope. You can be the one who is positive, optimistic, passionate, and inspiring. You can be the one who is the bright light in a gloomy crowd. You can be the one who dispels the negative energy and declare that YES the glass is half full! BlogFam, TRUST IN GOD! Your trust in the most reliable source of good and perfect gifts is indeed the key to your joy, your peace, and your hope. So if the supply of these gifts within you is fading or nearly undetectable or just gone, then check your connection! And TRUST IN GOD!!! May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. God LOVES You and I Do Too!!!
