Joy Over Burden

For he will not dwell unduly on the days of his life, because God keeps him busy with the joy of his heart -Ecclesiastes 5:20 NKJV

This verse represents what many of us want out of our lives. We want a life of fulfillment. We desire to love the work that we do. That’s why we switch majors, jobs, and career paths for a chance to spend our days working on the things that we’re truly passionate about. How great would it be for God to keep us busy with the joys of our hearts? That would be pretty awesome. Right?!

However in life the very things that once brought us joy can bring us burdens. It’s up to us to get the right perspective back. A perspective of JOY. A perspective of GRATEFULNESS. If you go the burden route you’re gonna burn out real quick. And you’re really missing out on seeing all the good that God is doing in your life each and everyday. So make whatever you’re doing fun again. Lighten up. Give the burdens to God while you keep your joy.
