The past few weeks have been a perfection to me. School is still demanding and my schedule equally so, but I have noticed the sun is shining brighter. It is all because of one word: joy. Joy is a conscious choice and I am learning to chose it, every single day.
I recently finished reading, “A Heart like His” by Virginia H. Pearce, and MY GOODNESS it has changed me. It is a beautiful novel about Virginia’s quest to be more vulnerable, open, and to love like God does. The book has motivated me to do just that, to let my guard down and experience life in the way it was intended and that has been the cause of my so-called “perfection”. I am currently filming a special project (details to come!), practicing yoga with goats, riding bikes, loving the people in my life, and SO MUCH MORE. The more I immerse myself in new things and adventures, the more I consciously see the Lord’s hand in my life. It is in those sacred moments where the only thing my eyes can clearly see is love, where I see God. He is just winking at me, reminding me to enjoy every second of the journey.
As I was reading through my scriptures, I stumbled upon a verse in Jacob. Tears filled my eyes as I understood and really felt Jacob and Joseph experienced. It is in the little details and big moments that we come to know our God and our Savior, Jesus Christ.
Jacob 1:6 And we also had many revelations, and the spirit of much prophecy; wherefore, we knew of Christ and his kingdom, which should come.
There is something so powerful in choosing joy and putting aside all else. In the end, nothing else will matter. Do your best, treat yourself well, and look for God. He is right there just waiting for you to know Him.
