Today’s Provocative Question from Fandango ties right in with a possible 1 liner from Linda Hill.
Would you be willing to give up everything you have if you could go back and start your life all over again? Why or why not?
The answer is No. It is our past that makes our present. Scripture tells us that through our trials we gain strength and preserver onward. While trials, problem or difficulties we may come across can be hard we have a choice – we own it or it owns us. I chose to be the owner and through the grace of God, preserver.
If you live in the US, may you have a wonderful Thanksgiving. If you do not then have a wonderful week and may you remember to always be kind.
As our feet sweep from the bed and hit the floor, our minds begin racing to deal with our task or worries for the day.
If we would be still and quiet just for a moment and and feel His presence,we would also feel His joy. Nehemiah 8:10 reminds us that “the Joy of the Lord is your strength.” And this strength can help you deal with all of those worries and tasks. Isaiah 42:6 reminds us he is always beside us “I will take hold of your hand”. Remember how comforting it was when your mom or dad held your hand, well our father in heaven always has our hand, we just have to believe it and trust it.
Sarah Young’s devotion in Jesus Calling today reminds us of the joy of God’s strength. “I, the God of hope, fill you with all Joy and Peace as you trust in Me, so that you may bubble over with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
So, bubble over with joy and happiness today as you feel His strength to carry you through anything you may face.
Bubbling joy makes you smile, smiling makes you kind, so let your joy spill on others today and be kind.
