My life has been so busy lately. That’s been my answer for everyone who asks how I’ve been.
Busy. Busy, busy, busy.
Maybe that’s why Psalm 16:11 hit me like a slap in the face:
It’s the kind of verse that makes me realize how far off track I’ve been here of late. Caught up in the mundane. Just pushing to get through another moment. Another day.
In the hustle and bustle of everything happening in my life—the tasks I have to complete and the dreams I yearn to see fulfilled—I’ve forgotten an essential thing.
There is joy to be found in the journey. Joy to be found in the One who gives life to those as undeserving as I.
And I find that what I’ve been missing these last few weeks is joy. The joy I used to find in His presence. The joy that unveils itself with every step God leads me through.
The path of life is just that: life. It’s not meant to be routine. It’s not intended to become mundane. It is meant to be lived. Fully. With joy in His presence and eternal pleasures at His right hand.
And for too long I’ve been forgetting to live so fully.
Today I come to find joy in His presence again.
