Day 23: 100 Moments of Joy (Phillipians 4:13)

Today as I was sitting in church thinking about the accountabilities that come with seeking to be a true follower of Jesus Christ, a good wife, a good friend, a good daughter, a good sister, etc., I felt momentarily overwhelmed. I thought about how fast time goes by and how life has felt a bit like a marathon recently. And I was wondering if it will always feel this way. As I was thinking, a scripture popped in my mind: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” (Phillipians 4:13)

It hit me in that moment that I need not worry about the future stressors of life. I need to focus on finding strength and peace in Christ. Because through Him, we will all be able to carry the loads that are ours.

I have much to be thankful for in life that brings joy. At the top of that gratitude list is the Savior Jesus Christ.
