Enjoy Today

  

Some days are easy to enjoy.

Some days are not.

As a child of God, redeemed and being recreated in Him – the day doesn’t get to choose if it is enjoyable or not- you do.

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭4‬ NIV)

The “always” is there because you won’t always feel like rejoicing.

Some days test your patience, challenge your sanity and make you want to say bad words.

Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭5-6‬ NIV)

Instead of blowing up, ask for help.

God is close- so close, you can lean on Him, talk to Him and ask for His help.

And instead of focusing on what is driving you crazy, focus on asking God to help you find something to be thankful for (even if it is that the day will be over).

And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (‭Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭7‬ NIV)

The peace of God does not depend on outward circumstances, other people’s choices or mistakes. It comes from God and transcends all human understanding.

You can have the peace of God within you as the world goes crazy around you.

You don’t have to understand it to receive it.

Rejoice is the Lord always. I will say it again: rejoice.

Enjoy today.
