Cutting a path to Joy

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Romans 15:13 (ESV)

I’ve been trudging uphill emotionally lately, feeling like my groove got away from me and I’m needing to get it back. It’s a multi-step process. I began by admitting that I was off, but what else to do? Cutting a path through the wilderness requires enough vision and faith to believe that a clearing lies ahead. What do you believe?

The Epistle to the Romans contains the largest single collection of Paul’s guidance to the early church, teaching doctrine and encouraging faith. Just like a battery in need of a jump, I sought the words of Paul to get back on the jungle path.

“May the God of hope fill you”
That’s enough. Don’t we all need an infilling? Do you feel as though you have enough God in you? I loved the declaration in Mary Mary’s recent gospel hit “God in me

You think I'm so fresh you think I'm so clean
You think I'm so sweet It's the God in me
What is it you think you see? It’s The God in Me
Imagine being so full of His Joy and Peace that you are diminished as He is enlarged in you. That’s the weapon I’m using to cut my path. I’m filling up, so much so, that I can’t even been seen except hidden behind the Throne.

So, I’m off to the well to fill up. To immerse myself in the fountain filled with blood drawn from Emmanuel’s Vein. So I can get my groove back. So I can cut that path through this jungle into joy. So that He shines through me until I almost can’t be seen.
