There’s a self-sabotaging mindset in the world that tells us, “I can’t be happy until I have EVERYTHING!”
We have to realize that we’ll NEVER have everything we want.
There’s always going to be something MORE out there that we THINK will make us happy.
The truth is, if we’re not happy NOW we probably won’t be happy LATER.
It’s Always Something
Many times, I’ve made the mistake of looking at what other people have accomplished and thought to myself, “Now THAT would make me happy!”
When in reality, they were probably looking back at me thinking, “I wish I had what she HAS!”
No one has a PERFECT life. We all have different challenges to contend with so we might as well just be HAPPY!
“Now godliness with contentment is great gain.” 1Timothy 6:6 (NKJV)
We all still have great EXPECTATIONS that haven’t materialized yet.
- Not EVERYONE understands our vision.
- We haven’t met a target GOAL.
- A FAMILY member is being difficult.
It’s moments like that, that could rob us of our JOY, peace, and happiness for the rest of the day.
Incredible Favor From God
We have SO many hopes and dreams that have ALREADY come true.
Sometimes we’re so motivated that we forget to slow down and CELEBRATE all that we DO have.
We can’t allow what DIDN’T happen keep us from celebrating ALL the good things that DID!
