Joy is a natural fruit produced by Christians who “walk by the Spirit.” It is there because we are confident that God has redeemed us. Joy, though, many times is a matter of perspective. One can allow the struggles of this age to diminish our joy. When this happens we need to regain our perspective. While in the midst of the storm we fail to realize that our God cares. Or we get so caught up in the here-and-now that we forget to remember and rejoice in the great blessings we have that cannot be taken from us.
This video, which my brother-in-law Alex Aguirre shot, was a reminder of how important perspective is in life. Watch, and like me be convicted.
