Good afternoon! Happy Friday to you all! I pray that this week has been a blessing to you all. I pray that if you needed rest, that you received it. I pray that healing has begun in any area of your life that may have been afflicted with sickness. I pray that you make a conscious decision to put God first in all that you do.
TFTD: Enjoy the life God gave you
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (New International Version)
18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Sometimes we spend too much time complaining about our life that we don’t take time to enjoy this life. We can complain without even thinking about it, but it takes a concentrated effort to think and speak positive things. Instead of complaining about what you don’t have, give God thanks for the things that you do have. Instead of talking about the things you wish you could do, enjoy what you do have and make the best of it.

This life that I have the world didn’t give it to me
And if I’m honest, I didn’t give it to myself either
So how dare I walk around with my head hung low
My heart filled with pain
My mind stressed to the tenth degree
Last time I checked my soul has been set free
This life that I have is short and precious
Covered by the blood of Jesus
Saturated by His grace and mercy
I need to stop complaining and enjoy the bounty
The bounty of blessings that God set aside for me
It’s time to enjoy this life that I’m living
And begin living as if I’m blessed indeed.
Have a blessed day and wonderful weekend. Enjoy the life God gave you. Stop looking at other people wishing that you had what they did, or wishing that you could do what they can. Enjoy all that God has given you and look forward to what He has in store for you.
