This Week's Focus

Investigate my life, O God
find out everything about me;
Cross-examine and test me,
get a clear picture of what I'm about;
See for yourself whether I've done anything wrong—
then guide me on the road to eternal life.

Psalm 139:23-24

Day 5: a sprout

This is how I feel today. A sprout of joy deep down in my heart, it felt like a tickle that bubbled up to my lips and curved the ends of my mouth up. I've been praying for months for joy in spite of my circumstances. It seems God has given me that gift. As I focused on him next to me, looking at me, I felt that joy! That is when the smile bubbled up! Because GOD was looking at me and I wanted him to know I knew. So I smiled at him.

You will show me the way of life, granting me the joy of your presence...
