31 Days of Joy: Day 12

These past twelve days as I've been blogging about joy, I've struggled to find joy in my everyday life.  Honestly, the past two weeks have been difficult, not only for me, but for my entire family.  I've been struggling through, trying to find distractions for the hurt and frustration building in my heart.  Earlier this evening, as I was wracking my brain, wondering how in the world I will come up with 20 more blogs about joy when I honestly don't feel it, "You are My Joy" by David Crowder began playing over and over again in my mind.  That's where I've been going wrong.  I've been focusing on all of the things that could bring joy without recognizing the source of that joy.  WHO is my joy?  And why am I fighting Him so hard?  In the act of surrender, in the simple words "I am weak, but You are strong," joy will come.  Jesus, forgive my wandering heart.  Fill me again with Your joy.


And He set me on fire, and I am burning alive.
With His breath in my lungs I am coming undone.
And he set me on fire and I am burning alive.
With his breath in my lungs I am coming undone.
And I cannot hold it in
Remain composed.
Love's taken over me
So I propose the letting myself go.
I am letting myself go.

You are my joy.

You are my joy.
You are my joy.
You are my joy.

And He set me on fire, and I am burning alive.

With His breath in my lungs I am coming undone.
And He set me on fire, and I am burning alive.
With His breath in my lungs I am coming undone.
And I cannot hold it in and remain composed.
Love's taken over me and so I propose the letting myself go.
I am letting myself go.

You are my joy.

You are my joy.
You are my joy.
You are my joy.

I need to catch my breath, I need to.

I need to catch my breath, give me a moment now.

You are my joy.

You are my joy.
You are my joy.
You are my joy.

I'm laughing so hard

And I'm laughing so hard
And I'm laughing so hard
