Did you make a choice to be happy in Christ today?
As we get hit by the waves of midterms, it's easy to get stuck in the daily monotonous patterns of a college student. Having joy takes a backseat in our minds, and we get consumed by our drive to "success."
Having joy is often times a conscious choice. Praying for joy isn't the end-all. God will place us in a situation where we can easily become joyless, but with the power of his Word and love, we have the ability to have joy in those seemingly joyless circumstances.
But for those of you who'd like a TL;DR (too lazy; didn't read), here are the main points:
How do we get unstuck when our joy is fractured? Or better yet, how do we avoid getting stuck in the first place?
First, remember that God is in control. He will not leave you, and he is not surprised by your struggles.
Second, pray for a heart that desires God’s glory, not your own. This is constantly the hardest but most rewarding step.
Third, prioritize your time. Do not let work get in the way of your devotion to Christ and family. Find creative ways to manage your time or destroy things that cut into serving God and those he’s put in your life. It’s worth it.
Now, here are your announcements, my beloveds!
