Do you ever have one of those day where you just get to feeling sorry for yourself? You know – several things have not gone your way and several other things seem to be working against you? You start thinking: “Life Just Isn’t Fair!” And you know – you are right: “Life Isn’t Fair!” If life were fair, we would be in a bigger mess than we often find ourselves. We don’t deserve anything, but God in His grace has offered us everything and then some!
You are going through something and you just don’t know how you are going to make it. Have you ever stopped to think – there are millions of people on this earth that are going through something just as bad and many going through something a whole lot worse? Our problem is we often get stuck in complaining about our circumstances and do little to nothing to change them. Stop complaining and do what you can! Circumstances happen to everyone! Stop complaining and start doing something about it!
If life is going to change, then you are going to have to change. You can’t keep thinking and doing what you have always done and expect different results. Determination and belief are powerful allies in helping you to overcome the personal behavior that often sabotages even your best efforts. Stop being negative and start looking for, pulling into and hanging around positive people. Life on this earth is too short to keep playing around and being miserable.
The more of your time and energy you spend dwelling on the things you don’t like and can’t do, the less time you will have to enjoy the things you do like and you can do! Life presents you with choices and it’s what you do with these choices that determine the quality of the life you will live!
God created you to be happy and fulfilled, so don’t let the enemy steal what your Creator has given you! John 10:10 says “The thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I am come that you might have life and have it more abundantly!” Life is hard and life is tough, but you were created to face it, overcome it and become stronger and better for the effort. I know it’s tough, some days I have to pray extra hard for the faith just to make it through, and then as God provides that faith, I do make it through and I discover that I am much better for it!
Hang in there and remember you are not alone! You have a Creator, who is walking with you every step of the way. And you have a friend, who is right here praying for you and willing to help you in any way that I can. I hope this helps, encourages and gives you victory today! God Bless And Give God Glory!
One thought on “Pick Me Up!”
MJ, we have that choice everyday of whether we are going to have a good day or a bad day. Satan wants us to make the choice to have a bd day but life is way too short to live your life like that. Choose to have that good day. You can talk yourself into either one but I love to choose the good days. It makes life a whole lot happier and the people around you are happier too. We can make a difference in their day also. One of my favorite songs is “What a Wonderful World” by Louie Armstrong. Just pay attention to those words and you can’t help but be happy and have a wonderful day. We do live in a Wonderful World. Thanks to Jesus Christ!!!
