A happy heart makes the face cheerful,
but heartache crushes the spirit.
I am waking up to a new day and counting blessings of life. I purpose having a happy heart, just like I purpose taking medication for Diabetes. I know I have a health issues and it's important to take medicine my body needs. It's important to purpose good thoughts and not think about those things I can not change. Moments of life happen whether they are good or bad. Each decision lines up with affecting someone else at times too.
A NEW DAY ~
What can you change to make today better? What thoughts can you trash and grab onto new thoughts of hope, peace and trust? Life isn't always about ourselves but it's important to take care of self.
Psalm 103:2-5 New International Version (NIV)
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits--
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
MOMENTS OF LIFE ~
Forget not all the benefits of serving God
Life isn't always about what we can get, but what we can give. We need each other in life and God connects lives on purpose. God gives us free will and understanding of his ways. He wants us to surrender our thoughts to his thoughts. Reading the Bible and connecting with those who believe the word (Bible) of God sure helps. The Bible speaks of this, "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". That's a change mindset to God's plan. That's knowing that God is able to take care of you. Each decision of my life has carry me into action. I have great moments of life and I have sad moments of life. I choose to dwell on the happy moments and leave alone things that weren't so great. Thinking of hard times, can spur us on to greater ones. Don't let it pull you back into sadness. We can grow and learn from every situation of life.
I love God with all my heart. I do have things I wish I had never did, but I also have so many great moments of life. I like who I am today and I know that God has grown me into a stronger person. I hope you see yourself the way God does too and purpose this a good day.
My thoughts and prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
