more heartache than we could ever imagine.
It is a matter of the heart.
Really, it all comes down to the heart.
Are you unyielding, demanding and selfish?
Our needs are so important.
So much so that we often neglect others.
Our hearts; focused inward.
And we’re wasting away.
We sacrifice much, when decisions are made based on what we feel.
Yet when you give out of your brokenness.
When you give out of nothing.
Touching down in the places where the destitute reside.
It is changed.
What motivates you?
Where in your being do you know joy?
In letting go of all that you know, giving all your fears and hopes over to the One who breathed into our lifeless form, there you will discover the truth.
When there is nothing.
When all you see is hopeless.
That is where the joy begins.
I Corinthians 13:4-6
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.(emphasis mine)
The questions beg to be asked,
What do you have to give?
Where will you go to find Joy?
