I am not over-worked, or overly tired.
Yet, I have been struggling to find joy.
For some reason, the joy I had a couple of weeks ago totally disappeared.
My heart is restless, I am easily agitated, annoyed, and frustrated.
I'm fighting for joy.
Joy that comes from beholding my risen, victorious, glorious Lord.
I'm battling for peace.
Peace that springs from knowing the good God who is sovereign over all things.
I am finding it difficult to keep myself focused and be at rest.
My vision is so clouded that I lose the sight of the hope that is laid in heaven.
Remember me in your prayers.
