Simple Joy

Psalm 36:7 “How priceless is your unfailing love!  Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.”

Life is full of struggles, but if we only focus on the struggles we never see the blessings.  When things in our lives are not going as we planned we often feel distraught and alone.  Satan wants us to sit here and doubt God’s goodness.  Even in the midst of troubles and heartache God is walking with us.

When life is difficult, try to find the blessings within your day.  When we begin to seek out blessings this has the power to change our attitude.  When our hearts are downcast we are in a negative state. If we can find the blessings our hearts will change thus changing our overall attitude.  This is not always easy, but start by thanking God for simple things such as the air you breathe, the birds in the sky, and the clothes on your back.

Life itself is a blessing even thought we face difficult times.  When we allow the difficult times to over take our grateful hearts we will be overcome with sadness.  Don’t allow difficulties to steal your joy.  Find strength in the simple things of life.

Father in Heaven, thank ou for the protection of your wing.  Just as a mother bird uses her wings to protect her you’re You of Lord use your wings to cover and protect me.  Help me when I am feeling lost, alone, angry, and downcast to remember Your love for me.  Help me when life seems to be going all wrong to find joy in the smallest of blessings.  In Jesus Name, Amen
