25 Jul Heart to Heart with God: A Journey Towards Acceptance Day 52
365 Days of Reflection Towards God’s Love and Acceptance
~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 52-West Palm Beach, Florida:
As we go through our day to day lives there are points where we start to become complacent and we may start to see cycles of activities that are a hindrance to what we would rather be doing, like playing golf, laying on the beach, or spending time with our family. In those moments are when we have to start looking for God and the blessings that we are receiving all around us. As we work towards those moments that bring us so much joy, we also have to validate the bumpy road we all traveling along to get there.
While we are in the midst of these troubles of the day we need to spend more time with God and less time worrying about things that we cannot control. In addition, we need to eliminate dedicating time to thoughts that are not helpful to our physical and emotional well being as we walk with Jesus. So, how do we remove the problems we encounter during our times of adversity from the day in order to focus on the work of God in all that we do?
The way that we do that is to stop and think about the ways that we could better utilize our energy for the glory of our Father. For example, instead of looking as a cloudy day as a depressing day where we want to stay in bed all day, we must go out and make a great day of it regardless of the obstacles in our way. The only difference between a good day and a bad day is our mindset. When we include Jesus in every moment of our day, we start to appreciate the gifts that we are given and begin to see the birds singing even when it is raining outside.
