Joy

I am sure I am as rich as I want to be. I suppose that could mean that I could make an unlimited amount of money if I wanted to, but that is not what I mean. I mean I do not really want to be rich. I like being the way I am. Well, a couple hundred more a month would not be bad. Actually, just enough to cover my budget is nice.

I had a really interesting day. I did pretty well emotionally, sort of. My emotions are swinging like crazy right now. I do not even know what to do with it. I did not know I possessed so many of them. It is nice that some of them are positive.

A friend referred me to a podcast. I listened to it this morning on the way to work and as I cleaned. It was from some church in Redding, CA. It was by a charismatic, black guy. I was dancing I was so happy listening to it. It was about faith. All the concepts taught at my local church just put a very slightly different way. In any case, I wanted to “Glory, hallelujah” down the streets of this town. Now that would make people think I am crazy, which I probably am.

I experienced a lot more joy today. Really quite a bit. I did little happy dances throughout the day. “For the joy of the Lord is our strength!” has been going through my head on a regular basis.

I also reached out to someone who has known me my whole life about this introvert/extrovert thing. Watching from the outside what does the swinging pendulum of my personality look like? Apparently the best guess is a slightly more than slight extrovert. On a scale of 1-10, one being introvert and 10 being extrovert, I rate a 6.25-6.5.

Hmmm. In any case, I have started to act very extrovert when I am in safe situations as I go through this counseling. In unsafe situations, I am very introvert. Mental processing wise, I am an extrovert. I always have to tell it to a person before I can work it out.

Anyway, enough of that. Who cares what I am? Time will tell with this round of counseling. I am just so glad I focused on where God has brought me from instead of how far I have to go. That brought me a lot of joy.

And Nehemiah continued, “Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!” – Nehemiah 8:10
