THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
IF YOU DON’T GET HAPPY WHERE YOU ARE, YOU’LL NEVER GET TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE….
Are you enjoying LIFE? If not, maybe it’s because you are taking for granted what you already HAVE. You may think, “Well, I can’t enjoy my life. I’ve got too many problems.” Let me encourage you not to focus on what you DON’T have and begin focusing on the GOOD things in your life. Take just a moment today and thank God for your HEALTH and STRENGTH. If you suddenly lost your health and felt miserable, you would be OVERJOYED to be in the same position you are today. Thank God for your JOB—it may be difficult at times, but it’s one source of God’s PROVISION for your needs. Thank God for the BLESSINGS you have right NOW. Nothing will hinder your relationship with the Lord and stop you from going to the next level more than having an ungrateful ATTITUDE.
The apostle Paul said he had to “LEARN” to be CONTENT. It’s a CHOICE we have to make. This mighty man of God discovered the secret of TRUE happiness—ENJOY life REGARDLESS of your circumstances. If you don’t get happy where you ARE, you will NEVER get to where you want to be. Learn to enjoy EVERY stage of life’s journey. Have a GRATEFUL attitude and be CONTENT no matter WHERE you are. If you DO, God will take you to VICTORY, and you’ll live the abundant, JOY-filled life He has in store for you.
Philippians 4:11, NASB
…I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.
