As we start off Thanksgiving week, I just want to give you a few tips to enjoy your life! Simple things that will help you to be thankful and grateful for the life that we are all so undeserving of.
Psalm 100:1 "Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands. Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing. Know ye that the LORD he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.
The Lord wants us to shout from the rooftops - of our thankfulness for Him!
If you won’t sing, everything out there will sing – the trees, the whole nine!
Psalm 100:4-5 "Enter into his gates with Thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations."
1 Thessalonians 5:18 "In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
We are so undeserving of the life we have today. In all that we do, we need to express the gratitude we have for Jesus and the sacrifice He made for us so that we can have the life we do! We should never get too caught up in the mess of life that we ever take it for granted. We must enjoy every second.
5 tips to enjoy your life:
1. What not to do: don’t dread things! Don’t mull it over in the negative – whatever it is. Because dread is the sister of fear, and opposite of Faith! Don’t use your time to dread.
2. Live your life one day at a time! The Bible says you’re not promised tomorrow, so why dread something that may never even happen?!
3. Learn to live in a divine rhythm; Try every day to help somebody. You can make a cup of water for someone, do somebody’s wash for em!
4. Don’t take yourself or life too seriously.
5. Be grateful. Thank God for the people who love you! There’s people who love you when you aren’t lovable.
Also, enjoy your work! If you don’t love what you do, don’t do it!!!
Use the gifts that make you feel like you’re promoting your life because Jesus is going to ask you, “What did you do with what I gave you?”
When I answer, I want to be humbled and say I did the best I knew to do with what you gave me.
Godspeed & Keep on Truckin'!
