awoken JOY

The years of a steady paycheck that covered all of our needs were great! Direct deposit was an extreme luxury, but this is not such a season. Yet how is it that in the most unstable of circumstances (financial, cancer, music career, 4 kids, moving away from family, etc) we’ve never had so much fun nor grown this much as followers of Jesus?

In the midst of crazy times, I’ve found that we seem to wrestle with a few decisions:

Either God is God……….. or……….. He is not

Either He is good……….. or……….. He is not

And our response is:

Either we give God the figurative fist……….. or……….. We lean into Him (John 15)


I dare say that through this desperation, Jesus has awoken JOY.
