Where are you at today? Stress or Joy

Yesterday was a hard day.
Today is a good day.

The same blessings were available both days. Yesterday I just was so much in my head and focused on my situation that I did not access that which was available for me.

It is easier to be grateful for the good in life, when life actually is good. Yet, I know of many Christians who are grateful year round, regardless what is occurring. This is what we are called to do…but that is easier to say then to do.

During this time of change for us all, during this time of unrest, during this time of political divisiveness, we need a daily reminder to focus on the Lord and all His goodness.

Are you facing difficulties today?
Is your focus on the negative?
Can you be grateful for the works of the Lord?

Lamentations 3:22-23 New Living Translation

22 The faithful love of the Lord never ends!
    His mercies never cease.
23 Great is his faithfulness;
    his mercies begin afresh each morning.

James 1:2 New Living Translation

Faith and Endurance

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy.

I don’t normally ask for responses but today I would love to hear where you are at these days. Feel free to comment below.

Until Next Time~
Blessings, Kate
