PSALM 118:24 GWN 24 This is the day the LORD has made. Let's rejoice and be glad today!
God does not want us to be sad and depressed. God intends for us to enjoy life.
Of course, this life is not the end. Eternity with God is most important. And there is nothing wrong with sacrificing something in this life for the purpose of obtaining something better in the next phase of our life with God in Heaven. But that should not stop us from enjoying this life.
You may be in prison. But you can still rejoice in God's goodness. You can study and learn. You may even be able to see more clearly mankind's need for a Savior, and so appreciate God's plan of salvation even more.
Learn to rejoice in and enjoy what many would call the small things in life. Smell the flowers. Enjoy the colors God created. Marvel at the complexity of God's creation and His great ability.
1 TIMOTHY 6:17 NKJ 17 . . . God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
Enjoy the diversity of people God created. He made us all different, yet all the same in many ways, such as our desire for love and acceptance.
You may be in a wheelchair. But you can still appreciate all the beauty that God created. You can pray for others. No matter where you are, or what your circumstances may be, you can still enjoy the presence of the Lord and fellowship with Him.
PSALM 16:11 NKJ 11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
So live in the awareness of God's presence and His great love for you. Be thankful for every blessing, and enjoy life.
SAY THIS: God's will is for me to enjoy life with Him, regardless of my circumstances.
