I just want to tell everyone we have a wonderful life, no matter what our circumstances are today.
You may ask what is so beautiful about our circumstances, we a have virus, high unemployment rate, racism, and a shortage of some foods?
In situations like we have today, we have to look at life from a different angle, we are going to have to show appreciation for what we do have. Sure, you would like a new house, new car, etc., but for now, just try to be satisfied with what you have.
We are the ones upset with the way things are going today, as far as Jesus is concerned everything is running according to his plan. We have got to realize that Jesus is working behind the scene, although we do not see any major results, there is progress being made for the better of mankind on earth.
Sometimes I go outside and watch a sunrise, sunset, grass, flowers, trees, etc. And I am amazed at how wonderful this world is and how beautiful things are made. Some people do not notice all of the beauty the world has to offer, because they are too busy with day-to-day living.
I know someone somewhere is not having an easy time right now, although they do not know it, but their lives are about change for the better. Everyone runs into some bad times, but we should expect and be prepared for such times.
By having The Holy Spirit living in your life will make the hard times much easier and go by much faster. Jesus gave us this wonderful world and he intended for us to live an abundant life on this planet. The problem is Jesus has laws and rules that we must follow in order to live an abundant life.
If you do not have the Holy Spirit living in you, do not be despaired, Jesus has made provision for you to live a decent life while you are on this earth. Your problem will be what happens to you after you are no longer on this earth.
The next time you read or hear about some sad news somewhere on earth, do not be discouraged. That incident had to happen in order for things to work together as previously planned. I know that sounds horrible, but that is the way things work.
So, go ahead and enjoy your life, your family, your friends, your accomplishments, etc., but follow all of the COVID-19 restrictions. I live in Texas and it is not mandatory that Texans wear masks anymore, but I think I am going to continue wearing my mask until everyone is vaccinated.
If you live in Texas or any state where it is not mandatory to wear masks anymore, you make the decision to wear or not wear a mask. And I am OK with whatever decision you make you will not hear me complain about the decision you made.
Each and every one of us should be pleased with the way things are happening today, although some of the stuff that is happening today is not so pleasant. Know this, Jesus is in total control of whatever happens here on earth, whether we like it or not.
See if you can find ways to turn sad news into pleasant news, this will brighten the day for some people, including yours. By all means do not let this beautiful world pass you, without you taking full advantage of all this God-made world has to offer.
Make it a point to start enjoying your life the way Jesus intended for you too. It is hard to enjoy life when you are worrying about other things.
