finding joy in being real

I CAME ACROSS this poem today in my time with God. It speaks directly to what I was processing yesterday. I think it can be fitting for many people during the holiday season, when the pressure to be happy is at an all-time-high.

Be brave enough to be real.

Be curious about God’s world.

Be fully present to each moment.

Be gentle with yourself and with others.

Be filled with wonder.

And be ready for joy.

This poem is from the December 8th devotional on
