I just read an article today. Maybe many of you have read it also since it was floating around on big FB.
It’s titled, “The Happiest People Are Those Who Realized That God Is Enough,” written by Rania Naim.
After reading it, it’s not only catchy, it's true.
I am going to stress that I just came off of having a WONDERFUL week last week. I felt GREAT! I truly believe that God knew I need last week to restore after a couple of awful weeks.
Looking back on the week, I know exactly why I felt so great.
Last week, God was enough. It wasn’t a week that I got a whole bunch of things done. Nor was it a week that was filled with a whole bunch of happy events.
Nothing extraordinary happened. Actually, I had a couple of big disappointments.
But it was still AWESOME.
How can that be?
The world tells us that to be happy, we have to have good things happen to us. We need to have those brand-new shoes, the perfectly kept house,...
I don’t want to....
Can you hear the shrill voices of your kids saying this? I sure can.
But... to be honest, I can also hear myself saying it a lot lately.
We all get in this rut sometimes where we just keep repeating it.
I started this morning saying, “I don’t want to get out of my warm bed.” Then it continued with, "I don't want to work out." "I don't want to get the kids up yet." "I don't want to..."
Have you noticed? It has become kind of a plague in our society.
“Do the things that make you happy.” “Don’t do it if it doesn’t feel good.”
Shoveling snow doesn’t make me happy. I do it anyway. I’m always glad I did when I am done.
Cleaning doesn’t feel good while I am doing it, but it feels great when I am done.
Passing on the chocolate peanut butter dessert at a holiday party does not make me happy or feel good in the moment.
