And my heart overflows with His Joy!

I let a day go by without posting!!

tsk tsk

It's 12:30 in the morning, so maybe I have time to make up!

It's been a long day!
I have a biology test tomorrow, so my day has been full of study and writing! When I wasn't doing that, I was at work! I'm sorta tired, but I had some green tea and some chocolate, which has perked me up.

During our family devotions tonight(Tuesday!) we were reading in Hebrews and my eyes wandered over to this verse in Chapter 4:

Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

- Hebrews 4:16

My heart was immediately filled with gratefulness to God. I am so undeserving of this freedom. Only through Jesus' death have I been made free. I can approach His throne with no fear, and go and receive His love and compassion.
I get so bogged down with little petty things, but then I have to take a step back to see: "Wow! I serve an amazing God!" And this amazing God has given me the freedom to take all my burdens and lay them at His feet. Praise Him for His never-ending mercy and kindness! This makes my heart overflow with happiness!

May the Joy of the Lord always be with you!

Love, Adrienne Renea

Tea, chocolate, and the Word... doesn't get much better, does it? :)
