Question for reflection:
Another way of describing “joy” is “to feel in the center of God’s will.” The phrase “in the center of God’s will” makes me think of the “eye” of a storm. How might joy, or “feeling in the center of God’s will,” be like or dislike experiencing the eye of a storm?
Prayer for the day:
Plant in me a desire, Holy Spirit, for deep joy. May my journey towards joy have occasional moments of happiness, but prod me past the comfort of moments to the satisfaction of enduring purpose.
