God is removing distractions from your life and adding in joy. In order to hear your next step from God all distractions must be removed. There may be some things in your life you don’t want removed but it’s vital that they are so that you can take the next step.
God is also filling you up with joy. Some of you have tanks that are empty and you feel weak but it’s the joy of the Lord that will give you strength. As God removes distractions and fills you with joy you will find yourself hearing clearly from God and having the strength to continue moving forward.
