Today was one of those days….
The day where everything seems so unproductive that you literally want to rewind time and work double time to feel like at least one thing went right.
That is how it started.
Thankfully no matter how bad a day is for me, I always know that the peace I have in Jesus surpasses all.
There is a joy and delight. I don’t always focus on it, but I always have something to be grateful and blessed by.
Mid day on the twenty-fifth of February in the year of two-thousand and fifteen anno domini, (in the year of our Lord), I read an article on Delight.
And conveniently I have left a link here for you to check it out.
Who knew that I would read a blog from one of my pastors describing How I was feeling at that moment?
-Now if you are anyone but me, not seeing my thoughts flying at thousands of miles per second inside my head you should be scratching yours saying, “Huh? but … but he said he was having a bad day..”
Though I wouldn’t say it was a bad day, per say, it was a stressing day.
But something happened, that has been happening, for the past few day….
The weather is getting warmer, and when I get off work I can start to see the sunset.
I love seeing the sunset. You can forget watching the sunrise with me, I’d much rather sleep.
As for the sunset? I’ll take that any day I can.
I’m not sure why but the good weather and sun have just been lighting up my world lately. Seeing God’s creation, and the beauty of His handy work is inspiring, amazing, and affirming to my faith.
But today as I started to drive home I was overcome by Delight. There was this joy and peace that just took over and I was excited.
I went from struggling to keep myself awake to seeming like I was on a caffeine/sugar high in an instant.
I was bouncing in my seat, screaming for joy at the top of my lungs, putting the pedal to the medal, and I felt like I had been given the world. The feeling was nigh indescribable.
The only thing I can think of that would cross a spectator’s mind seeing me in such a form would be one of the following options: 1. He’s psychotic, 2. He’s escaped from the insane Asylum, 3. He’s possessed, 4. That guy is high on something.
While we may laugh at the scenario of a full grown man speeding down the highway head banging in his car smiling like he fell in love, screaming at the top of his lungs, and beating that steering wheel harder than people hit drums…. we often forget that in our lives there are sometimes when you just need to let things go and enjoy life.
Its not like you’re going to get retries to perfect your life the “first time”. You’ll fail at some point. You’ll not meet up to someone’s explanations, you will be left out, forgotten, and alone at times.
Or so you think. Though honestly that is far from the truth. There is a God who loves you, who paid everything needed to spend time with you, and you have to come to terms with that on your own.
Anyways back to the story. Here I am and I see the sun setting in the distance. My brain sees the this scene and I’m as giddy as a kid in candy store who was told to pick out as much as possible.
Of course like stated earlier, someone probably was looking at me like I was crazy.
So what? What about it? Are we in such a world that outward expressions of joy, delight, and gratitude are lost?
I hope not. I mean I have been laughing, and happy for really no reason at all besides the fact that I saw God’s handy work.
What Joy and Delight!! What peace!
I probably… rephrase that, I AM crazy. there isn’t a question about that. But in this matter, I would say I’m not.
I think that I’m on the verge of actually demonstrating the joy of Salvation in daily life without actually purposing to demonstrate it.
Ah I wish I could pour into your life the joy I have been having today. After work it has just been nearly overflowing.
So let me ask you this,
Is it crazy to demonstrate delight? Will you be listed in history as a nut case for breaking the chains of the twilight glum and actually showing exhilarating emotion?
I hope so. I wish you luck. The world can use a dose of happiness to fill the soul a lot more often.
Until next time,
