Guide to a Joyful Heart
Tip of the Day:
But without faith it is impossible to please him, for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6, KJV
We, Dear Ones, we are sinners. We are not righteous in ourselves. We can not please God through anything we do except that we believe in Him, the one true God, and His Son, Jesus Christ.
Then, when we come to believe and trust in His leading, we will desire to do what is right in His eyes. Yes, we will fail. We will sin, because we are not perfect. We are a broken people, living in a broken world, but that is why Jesus came. He paid the price with His blood to cover our sins. All we need to do is believe in Him, trust in His plan for us, do our best to live like Jesus, and when we fail (sin) humbly ask for forgiveness.
God desires to reward all His children. Look for Him in the small things, as well as in big ways. Sometimes I think we need reminded to lift up our heads and look at what all God has created for us to enjoy. Also, briefly reflect on the difficult times God has already brought you through. This time is no different. Whatever situation you are in or headed into God is already there, making a way for you. Trust in Him.
