It’s been really cool lately to see good things happening to some of the people I love the most. After what has seemed like a long season of difficulties and struggles, I am seeing favor and blessing upon them in some pretty big ways, and I can’t hide my joy about it. It’s overwhelming to see what’s happening…in a good way.
Thanks, God, for listening to prayers and always being there.
O praise the name of the Lord our God. O praise His name forevermore. For endless days, we will sing Your praise, O Lord, O Lord our God.
‘You will have a hard time ever being happy if you aren’t thankful for the good things in your life right now.’
These words were included in an inspirational poster image I came across on Facebook the other day. Plenty of truth in them, no?
I mean, it makes sense when you really think about it. If we only look at what the seemingly bad things are, we’re sunk. Negative thoughts have power, just like positive ones do. But as the old phrase says, ‘Look on the bright side.’
Doesn’t mean things won’t get rough at times or that there won’t be reasons to be sad. It’s gonna happen. But making a conscious decision (you may need to remember to do this several times a day at certain points of your life) to acknowledge that while the skies might not be very clear, or even look completely cloudy…the sun is shining somewhere.
The stuff that has gotten you down is only keeping you there because you let it. So I encourage you today to focus on the sunshine, not the clouds. You have a lot going for you. Trust that God knows what He’s doing with your life, even when you don’t, and make the most of this awesome day you get to live and enjoy. Good things are coming to you 🙂
