Finding Bliss

Something I easily forget is that problems are inevitable. Tough times will come because we're fallen people on a broken earth.

I tend to think that happiness & peace are just one step away... I'm so close... if I can only grasp it, troubles will melt away and bliss will begin.

But there will always be struggles... stress and drama and schedules and harsh words and uncertainty and hurt feelings and confusion and doubt. The bliss comes in knowing I'm loved through it all. It comes in wisdom and knowledge to handle the hardships. It comes in a life that reflects God and honors others. It comes in stretching and learning and growing. It comes in knowing there are greater things ahead than any we leave behind.

Find bliss in the moment you're in.
