Being joyful takes effort.

God can and will use circumstances to sculpt the masterpiece that He sees as me. So I need to stand still while the Creator uses circumstances to  transform my life. Develop patience and count each trial as a joyful event that glorifies Him. I must be available to Him. To be used by Him for a particular reason. He saved me for a purpose. Could it be that I should be an example of joy in the midst of trials? What do you think?

Count it all joy!

    Sometimes it takes great patience to find new joy. Some of the circumstances He uses to transform us can be painful and miserable and at times difficult to see how that makes us better people. However, the end result is always the same. God uses us to make sure His plans are carried out. As one of the devotionals said this morning. Look at Joseph, he’s here and then he’s gone again and never to be heard from again. But, he fulfilled God’s promise to mankind.
