Uhhh… sometimes, I have a tendency to say negative things. (Are you shocked?)
My husband loaded the dishwasher and that should make me happy. Right? Except, he put all the dishes in really CRUSTY and I had to re-wash them.
My kids decided to “help” with the laundry, on Friday morning. That’s AMAZING! But, I didn’t find it all wadded up in the washing machine until Monday night after I got home from work. YIKES!
At the office, I have several meetings scheduled with a person I don’t want to meet with. They just drive me CRAZY! (And sometimes it’s a short drive. Lol)
But, if I start complaining about all the negatives, I’m pushing my faith toward depression. Toward a feeling of “I’m NEVER going to get out of this!”
A lot of Americans feel like they have nothing to look forward to? Depression is at an all-time HIGH. Joy is at an all-time LOW.
The devil is always working against us and we may not even realize it. Will things EVER get better?
You might be thinking, “How is God going to CHANGE this? How is He going to get me OUT of this situation?”
Instead… what if we asked, “How is God doing a work IN me? I wonder how He’s going to bring me THROUGH this!”
God has given us the POWER to be happy, even in the middle of everything! It’s actually not about God changing the situation; it’s about God changing US!
So, where can we find joy?
Happiness and contentment is found in God’s presence. Spend time, daily, at the feet of the Creator.
The happiest people I know, don’t HAVE everything… they just MAKE the best of everything!
When you have a little time all to yourself… how or where do you find joy? Tell me in the “comments.”
