31 Days: Learning to Just BE... A Warrior {Day 17}

To Arms!
"If you don’t fight for joy, it’s your children who lose.

What do I want my children to remember — my joy in clean floors, made beds and ironed shirts — or my joy of the Lord?

You will be most remembered — by what brought you most joy."
These are some of the excruciating words I read today. Every time I read the lovely author, Ann Voskamp, I cry. Seriously. I cry every time. It is as if she was writing about my life. Only her words ebb and flow and carry you along the current, deep calling to deep. Such beautiful words, sent to me for such a time as this. She reminds me, no implores me to fight on!
For quite a while now, I have had this urging thought in my mind that I need to begin the day, totally surrendered to Him. I am in a war for my soul and the souls of my children.
I will fight this war, on my face. He has already won. I'm just agreeing with it and walking forth victorious.
Now, get thyself over to read the rest of "Why the Battle for Joy is Really Worth it {Crazy Joy 17}"
