Down In The Dumps?

This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
If we dwell all the time on the news, our problems, bills, sicknesses and other such things in depressing categories, it is easy to lose any joy you may have had. I have a suggestion for you. Wake up daily and the first thing just say, "thank you Lord for this wonderful day"!

The author of bad stuff is not the Lord. He indeed can use awful things to draw us closer to Him. Life does have a problem here and there. Death of a family member, bankruptcy, mental illness, suicidal thoughts, loss of income, cancelled medical insurance, bad grades, a car that won't start. These are only a few. But you can choose to dwell on those things or look up to Jesus who can help you overcome anything in your path. Tell Satan to get his stinking hands off you and run your race to win, straight to the cross. 

Today and every day start praising God for the good things and even write them down. Do not allow Satan to keep you from having joy. 

PRAYER: Lord thank you for every thing in life for in the bad I see how much I need you all the time. In Jesus' name. Amen.
