Choosing Joy when i'm not feeling it.

The season of life that I am in now is not going to be my season of life forever.  These are the words that i find myself repeating on an hourly basis.  

Life just has a funny way of just happening.  

Adoption can put the vow "for better or for worse" to the test in a marriage. And that's FOR REAL!

So how do i weather this storm??? 

I must choose JOY even when i don't want to.

Joy in the midst of the uncertainty.  

Joy in the midst of what feels like an identity crises.

Joy when i want to bawl my eyes out.

Right now the season of my life is enjoying these moments that I am completely forced to trust in God's perfect timing. 

God’s plans are almost always different from our plans, but His plans are always perfect! 

I need to have the patience to wait on His timing instead of forcing my own.
I need to fully focus my energy on what THIS season of life is about, and when the seasons change I’ll work on whatever new purposes need to be accomplished.

After all...

We can’t always control what happens to us, but we can always control how we choose to respond.

Choose joy.
