I’ve been kicking around the idea of starting a new blog. This is the title I’m working with for now. Not because I have such outlandish joy yet, but because it’s where I’m headed. I know it. I have no idea what exactly will happen in this space, called “Brazen Joy,” but here is my declaration:


I don’t care what you think
I don’t care what my circumstances tell me
No matter what the voices from the past say
Regardless of what my critics say
God speaks a better word
A higher word
The final word
He says I have it
He says it’s mine
Though I can’t see it
Though I can’t grasp it
I can taste it, smell it, hear it
Way down deep
In the deep of my spirit
It rings, it echoes
It waits
But not for long
He says I have it
He says it’s mine
This Joy
This Brazen Joy
