{Be Loving} 3 Steps to Unlocking Joy

Posted on: March 27th, 2015 Written by No Comments

“Understanding (y)our identity in Christ changes everything.” I heard words like this countless times in sermons and books…all I had to do is understand, or begin to understand, and everything would change. As a new Christian, I was hungry to know and desperate for change as someone who spent their life without Jesus and spent every effort into making up my own identity. I devoured Scripture and googled verses all about my identity in Christ and what that meant. References and bible studies galore, and then I found this that seemed to spell it out quite simply (this is just…

I shared this same post with you all on December 3rd 2014. At the time, I didn’t know that Joy would be our March theme, I felt so pressed re-share this post with you as my final post about Joy this month. Now that you have read about Joy and what it means, What happens when you choose it, and how those choices affect our lives. so with that fresh perspective and your new mindset on joy I hope you can pull out new promises to hold onto in this post, because this one has meant a lot to me, and its always…

You’re driving along with your friends, sun is shining, a light breeze is going. Things are great. Then your favorite song plays on the radio: “Because I’m happy. Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth. Because I’m happy. Clap along if you know what happiness is to you.” Pharrell just captures it. Happiness…friends, sunshine, great weather, awesome music. Just plain happiness. Ahhhh. Happiness is like a fresh breeze. Or a free desert. Or a surprise visit from your best friend. But then something happens. Something swoops in- a happiness stomper- and now everything is different. In minutes…

We see it, the way joy can come and go like a fleeting wind. The way we feel joy one day, and then it seems to slip right through our fingers the next. That’s why this month’s topic of joy can be so hard to write about. It’s hard because we all want it, we taste joy and breathe its oxygen, we just don’t seem to have what it takes to keep it in our lungs. Just last week, I wrote about counting to joy. And this past week, my joy was challenged. I had to say goodbye to family…

You guys. I am so over the moon excited about today’s post. Gina’s blog was one of the first I came across when I entered the photography industry and boy, did she stick out to me. She was so… Authentic. Genuine. REAL. Gina could be the spokesmodel for our “Real Raw Relevant” theme here at Delight! Her blog is a place where you can really get to know Gina’s heart.

Suffering isn’t ideal. Lets just get that out there. We all experience pain to varying degrees at different points and it effects us and influences us greatly. There’s no shame in hurt and I would go as far to say never feel bad for feeling bad. Feeling bad isn’t a decision but what you do with those feelings IS a decision (and an incredibly important decision as well!). While pain is inevitable and often outside of our control, we are in control [Gal. 5:22-23] of how we respond to it and we CAN and ARE able to respond though Christ.*…

I got some messages after last weeks blog post to elaborate a little more on one particular age group, Kids. Oh, we love them to pieces! Chubby cheek grins, shy tears, pudgy little bellies… freckles. SO cute, right? I have two nieces and a nephew and I absolutely a d o r e them! But hey, we all know this is inevitible sometimes, kids and cameras often don’t easily mix, especially when pressure is applied! So often whether it is at a wedding or at a photo shoot a kid will feel the need to perform. I can’t tell you…
