As the week is have way over I am reminded of all the blessings that the Lord has given me. I wonder, did I {find joy} in each one of them?

1 Peter 4:12-13
Beloved, do not be surprised at the C)’>share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the E)’>you may rejoice with exultation”

As wives/moms we have alot on our plate however are we embracing them with JOY? Do we have our eyes on the prize, Jesus or do we have our eyes on US? Have we let the enemey creep in and start filling us up with lies?

When we have our eyes on US we can see all that is being done to us, all the flaws that one carries, all the needs that are not being met, all the {what about me’s}. Its the not feeling God anywhere around us. It will bring us to a point where we feel we can not go on!

When we have our eyes on Jesus we can find the joy in everything around us, we can look past all the distractions and love like Jesus loves us, we know that He will meet all our needs, we can see Him everywhere, and the what about me’s, turn into what about Him.

Finding joy through our journey is simplly keeping our eyes on the prize, Jesus. Its taking the focus off of US and puts it on HIM! Its embracing every mundane thing in our life and focusing on Him to find the joy. Its letting Him transform us from the inside out, seeing Him through our journey!

God made away directly to Him through Jesus Christ, do we really embrace what God did for US? {Life} can get in the way however when we learn when are eyes are we can take a moment

{LOOK UP},
{PRAY},
and {SEEK} His face to get us back on track!

The next time we feel like we can not go on, we can see the flaws of others, feel are needs are not being met, cant love those around us, drop to our knees and cry out to Jesus. Know that our eyes were taking off the prize and are focused on US!

Finding joy in this journey is a choose! God offers it freely through Jesus Christ. Keeping our eyes fixed on Him, helps us embrace the prize every time.

May you see the joy in every mundane task you embrace and keep your eyes on the prize, Jesus Christ!
