Joy truly does come after a season of disappointments and weeping…of emotional and/or physical pain. Glimpses of joy, a great event can be seen during times of trial. I alluded to one in the fall of 2016. Trials come before blessing, before our “promised land” or as some ministers, including my pastor put it, your “sweet spot.” #amwriting #GodsTimingForYourLife #AprilShowersofBlessing Click to Tweet

The challenge is to keep going, keep trying. “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 #DueSeason #amwriting #GodsTimingForYourLife #AprilShowersofBlessing Click to Tweet
