Are you REALLY enjoying your life?
Christians have available to them the abundant quality of life that comes from God. He who is never full of fear, stress, worry, anxiety, or depression. He is not impatient or in a hurry; He takes time to enjoy His creation. And he wants us to do the same.
I really don't think a majority of people are enjoying their lives. When you ask someone how their days is I'm sure you hear the constant response of, "Busy! I am just so busy with work, the kids, church, and school activities."
Sadly. we live in a stressful world that seems to be getting more stressful with each passing year. People are hurrying everywhere. They are rude, short-tempered, and it is easy to see that many people are frustrated and under pressure. They are experiencing financial stress, marital stress, and the stress of raising children in day's world.
I have a thought for you to consider:
Simplicity brings joy but complication blocks it.
Matthew 18:3 says God wants us to approach life with simple, childlike faith. He wants us to grow up in our behavior, but remain childlike in our attitude toward Him concerning trust and dependence. He wants us to know that we are His precious little ones, His children. We show faith in Him when we come to Him this way which allows Him to care for us.
We can not have peace and enjoy life without childlike faith. When you begin to live your life with all the simplicity of a child, it will change your whole outlook in a most amazing way.
Start looking for ways that you complicate things and ask the Hoy Spirit to teach you simplicity in those areas. He is extraordinarily powerful. He is also extraordinarily simple. He will teach you simplicity if you truly wish to learn.
This Week's Meditation:
Teach me to "find Simplicity."
Help me to meditate each day: "teach me to relax."
Teach me to be patient and know you will mentor me. Remind me that prayer motivates me.
Meditate on this for several minutes a day. Allow various thoughts to come into your mind. And realize God has you in his arms always.
