Are things getting to you? We're all in the same life raft, and together we can hold one another up. Let's practice our refocus. Refocusing on more of the joys. Experiencing small joys, will become bigger joys as you're crowding out worldly noise.
[ Refocus: Gods creativity, His beauty, wonders of nature... ]
As we know God works through our weakness to make us more dependent on him, and make us stronger ~ his way. We can also help ourselves by retraining our brains, learning what to allow in and what to disallow. It's not easy, because there's so much negativity coming our way every day.
The Daily Word ~ Full of encouragement, Godly comfort and Biblical living.
This is where our fight begins. Who chooses to live their whole life in a constant funk? We are not helpless. But this world can lead us to feel helpless. God says we are not! He tells us that he placed a helper within us, a part of himself ~ the Holy Spirit. Though we may feel it, we are never alone or without help.
"The LORD isthmus one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed."
We have more 'readjusting' of our focus to understand this because God didn't promise we'd be comfortable or 'happy' in this place, our temporary home. He promised we'd have eternal life with him if we believe in him and that he would never forsake us! We were never promised utopia on this earth... and God knows this realm is the exact opposite of utopia!
~ Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you . ~ Genesis 28:15
We're here to learn how to deal with life by the Holy Spirit within us and the tools he provides us with. It doesn't mean we will have all the answers to life plans and problems. It means if we keep focused on God and His Word, His ways, His rules for us to live by, His character, we will prosper in ways that HE has meant for us to. This has NOTHING to do with the way the world says we should prosper -
Let's keep strengthening and growing through Our Lord and Savior together!
Focus on small joys, a clear sky, or rain☺️. A warm cup of tea, fresh baked cookies😋
laughter, animals etc... God is all around us , we only have to stop to see.
