Laughing with Jesus

It’s been yet another late night

There’s little to no time left to write

I’m tired as always is the case

Spent all day running from place to place

Life is tough, but God You are tougher

Your faithfulness brings me hope and comfort

When I am weak, then You are strong

You, O Lord, are my strength and my song

Grant me peaceful rest tonight

And when I wake up, may I know all is right

May I honor you in what I do and say

And may I follow You, LORD, in every single way

Some days I journal eloquent prayers. Some days I shoot up sentence prayers when I feel sick or my friends text me that something is wrong. Some days I cry on my knees before my Savior when I don’t think I can go another step. And some days — I laugh with Jesus. 

I laugh with Jesus when I realize I’m worrying about things that I really shouldn’t worry about — He’s got them. 

I laugh with Jesus when someone unknowingly says something in the words of a Bible verse or praise song. 

I laugh with Jesus when He places the littlest blessings so deliberately in my path just because He loves me. 

Those are my favorite days. And they make me so look forward to Heaven. To spending eternity dancing and singing and laughing with my King and all my brothers and sisters in Him. 

When life gets stressful, when I feel like I have to be serious, when the worry is too much and there isn’t enough time for everything… laugh with Jesus. Let Him take your burdens (1 Peter 5:7) and let His joy and peace reign in your heart. 

Thank you, Lord. Thank you. Thank you for laughter and blessings and reminding me not to take myself too seriously. Thank you for grace.
