Living Life in a Fish Bowl!

Gloria’s take on life.

today

It can be easy to get caught up in looking down the road on where God may be leading us that we forget today is where we are and where God wants to use us.
 
“Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NASB)
 
When I am intentional about practicing these three things, my day is so much better.
 
Rejoice always – Negativity is something I battle with more than I would care to admit. It doesn’t win when I remember to rejoice throughout my day. Sure, some days are difficult but my joy is found in Christ and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. (Heb 13:8)
 
We do have a choice. I choose joy!
 
Pray without ceasing – to me this is the realization that at anytime and any place I can talk with God. He is with me always. He is my first response, not my last resort.
Giving thanks – here is another huge thing that will have an impact on our day. It is hard to be thankful and selfish at the same time.
 
God does care about how our day goes and He offers to us these three things that will enhance our days and therefore improve our lives.
 
Rejoicing, praying and thanking God as I go through this day.
 
How about you?
til next time
