...why I can't bear the weight

There are times when I feel so under the weight of life. Being away from the environment of school and friends (and fiance) is difficult...my surroundings are less than life-giving most of the time...which makes it hard to keep myself happy. Is that what I really need? To be happy?


Happiness is a faux feeling; it's worthless. There is no depth to happiness. It is one of those emotions that plays with your head: Ithink i'm actually OK when the reality is that there's no depth to it.

So, again: i'm promised JOY. Everlasting joy. Not Happiness. Yuck. Who wants happiness anyways?

Why should I be joyful?

"For your Maker is your bridegroom,
his name, GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies!
Your Redeemer is The Holy of Israel,
known as God of the whole earth."
Is. 54:5

Merry Christmas indeed. Even when crap seems all I can find in my day, I am the fiance of the Lord God of the Angel Armies. He knows what is going on when I do not. He is in control when I feel out of control.

I choose to trust You!



  1. love your perspective. and I love you bro.

  2. I was dealing with the whole "joy vs. happiness" issue the same day. Weird. Different story, similar conclusion: Spiritual state of being and emotions = two different things.

    Will you be able to "be the church" with us on Sunday or are you home for the holidays?
