Congratulations, YOU DID IT! You got through yesterday’s worries, you were BLESSED WITH ANOTHER DAY, and you’re strengthening yourself for tomorrow’s challenges.
Today’s Verse: “A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.” – Proverbs 15:13
Today’s post is short, simple, and hopefully meaningful. The reason I started this blog 5 years ago was in hopes that God would REACH YOU through the words He’s given me, ENCOURAGE YOU, and REMIND YOU that you are wonderfully made. YOU ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH.
So HAPPY THURSDAY. TREAT YOURSELF today, do something nice for yourself today. YOU DESERVE IT. Trouble can be circling you, worries can be knocking on your door, sadness may be trying to trickle in, but you know what? Too darn bad for them. TODAY IS YOUR DAY.
Today you begin your strength training to be able to endure future challenges. Your first exercise …SMILE DESPITE EVERYTHING GOING ON AROUND YOU. Now I don’t want a fake smile or any half hearted smiles. I want a huge, teeth showing, cheesy looking smile.
Did you do it? Did you smile? You did? HOORAY! It may seem so simple but you know what, it’s probably the hardest and the best place to FIND YOUR STRENGTH. You see when you smile you know that you can and will get through things.
Personally, I know how hard it can be to smile because sometimes we don’t feel the HAPPINESS to BRING THAT SMILE TO LIFE. But I have to do it anyway, I have to show the enemy. I have to show him that my God is bigger, stronger, and more powerful than any attack thrown against me. I reassure myself that in the end I WILL ALWAYS COME OUT VICTORIOUS. Sure I may have a bump here and a bruise there but you can bet that I’ll be showing them off because they’re reminders that GOD STRENGTHENED ME AND GOT ME THROUGH IT.
So that’s why today I think WE SHOULD ALL CELEBRATE. No matter what your emotions are telling you to worry about today, ignore it. Turn on your happiness, wear that smile, and treat yourself. STAY ENCOURAGED YOU WONDERFUL HUMAN BEING. Whatever you’re up against God will turn it around for your good. He is on your side, you’re in good hands, and those Hands and strengthening you. Spoiler alert, you will always be victorious when you put your trust in Him. THAT IS HIS PROMISE TO YOU.
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.” – Genesis 50:20
