I have to say that I feel a bit of a “pit” coming on in my life. Let’s hope it’s just a little one, but I suppose we never can tell what God has in store.
I feel the darkness settling in as my commitment to Scripture suddenly requires more willpower than zeal, and I find myself talking my soul INTO worship rather than naturally overflowing with it. Something is up with me.
I just want more of that JOY in Him.
Let’s pray for it. Let’s work for it. Let’s have faith that He will provide it!
“Praying for joy is not the emotional pampering of joyless people. It is preparation for sacrifice.” – John Piper, When I Don’t Desire God
