Live in the NOW

Cakes sent me this entry from Joyce Meyer's devotional on Youversion and I edited it to share.

It's easy to complain that you can't be happy now because you don't have enough money or you're single or you're too fat or you're still looking for a job or you failed a class or two... the excuses are many. But you know what? Yes, you have problems, just don't let them dictate how you live today.

CHOOSE joy, CHOOSE peace, CHOOSE to trust God today and make it a daily practice. Consistency is key. If you can, find 3 things to thank Him for, everyday e.g. life, water, somewhere to live, family, plantain!!!

Whatever it is, LIVE TODAY!

  2. Hahahaaaa yes oh!

    But on a real though, we are such a whiny lot (humans) and it gives me insight to just how annoying the Israelites must've been in Moses' care. The littlest hiccup & we're moaning about what we've done to deserve it? Loooooool
    Great post, thanks for sharing.
    There's so much to be thankful for

    1. I think about the Israelites sometimes too, and God's patience is on several levels!!! If I were the one in charge, I'da just sent them right back to Egypt :p

      BTW did you redesign your blog?

  3. Good to have you back darling.

    Favorite part is "one way to develop consistent peace is to live in the now" so so true; i need to practice this more. Learning to hold on to Matt 6:26 whenever i worry.

  4. There was a podcast by Joyce Meyer on that same topic where she says "You have to get happy where you're at on your way to where you're going" and it really struck a chord with me. Imagine how much happier we'd be as a world if we focused on finding joy and peace no matter what is going on around us. Thank you for the reminder.
