I love life! And, to be honest, I think God wants us to love life. Now, does it get crazy at times? Absolutely. Are there things that come into our lives that we don’t like and have no control over? Absolutely.
Welcome to life! Smile! My years have taught me – we don’t always know the WHY to all of life’s circumstances (and may never get them as in the case of Job), but HOW we respond to the unplanned and often unwanted circumstances in life, keeps life joyful.
I believe that is why God commands us, without exception, to “give thanks in and for all circumstances,” and to “rejoice in the LORD always.” ( Eph5:20 & Phil4:4) We are in the midst of closing on two houses and buying a house all at the same time. Therefore, we are intentionally practicing “giving thanks in and for all circumstances.” Smile!
Hey, if you’re bummed out, obey the command of our God and watch how EVERYTHING changes. Seriously! Oh, your circumstance may not change, but your attitude will—and that will be the DIFFERENCE MAKER.
