Life is a humorous thing. And very ironic.
Last month I was asked to be a guest contributor on a blog: Delight and Be. So earlier this month I wrote up a post on Joy (their theme for this month). Last night I found out that it was going to be on their blog today!!! *Happy Dance*
My post is entitled Happiness Stompers. Can you guess what it's about?
So this morning I woke up and I was so excited that I was going to have something I wrote up on a website. And what's even cooler is their website is geared towards teens! This week my husband is at a conference geared towards youth pastors and here I am getting a chance to write to teens all over the world. Who would have thought I'd be in youth ministry?! (not me, lol)
And on my way to work you know what happens. The car runs out of gas.
OUT. OF. GAS!
In the middle of a very busy intersection of course. Thankfully people stopped and helped. Friends came and helped. (So thankful for them!) And I got to work ok.
But see now I'm at work and I have a choice. Do I let this car situation be a happiness stomper? Do I let it steal my joy for the entire day? Or do I listen to my own advice and remember that joy trumps happiness and our joy is fitted in God? Advice that is up on the interwebs for all to read, today.
Today, of all days!
Guess God knew that I was going to need a little reminder about keeping my joy in Him today. It's like He left me a big giant post-it note reminder. :)
