Joy is such a hard thing to find and not be afraid to keep. To not be afraid it will slip away. To not be afraid it isn’t real. To not be afraid that you will fall so much further, because you have been too high. God, lead me to be unafraid to be happy, to have joy, to have hope for the future. We are meant to enjoy our relationship with You while we are here on earth. Give me the belief, and the security in You, and the strength to anticipate with hope and live with joy.
