Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
There are going to be times when you say, “God, I don’t understand why this is happening.” That’s when you must learn to accept that you will not always understand everything God is doing. That’s when you just have to trust that God has a plan and that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Life is not always going to be easy but if you learn to trust God with all your heart you will have peace, joy and happiness in this life.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 17:22
A joyful heart is good medicine.
Feeling joy in ordinary things isn’t as hard as it seems. To find joy in your life focus on the good and be grateful for what you have. It’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people who are happy. Give thanks to the Lord for in his presence is fullness of joy.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 14:30
A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.
When you have a real relationship with God, He changes your heart. You start to feel freed from anger, worry and envy. You have peace in your heart and a hope that makes you joyful. But a heart that envies the happiness, prosperity and success of others exhausts the body and soul. Don’t let envy steal your peace and joy, don’t let it affect your spirit or your health. Trust in the Lord, what is meant for you won’t pass you by.
Verse of the Day: Philippians 2:3
Do nothing from selfish or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.
We are living in an age where selfish ambition is the norm. Our culture teaches us to think of ourselves as the top priority and to put ourselves first in everything we do. But the Bible teaches us to be humble and not to think of ourselves as more important than others. True love is not selfish, it puts our partners needs and happiness above our own.
Verse of the Day: Ecclesiastes 3:12
I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.
God has given you the gift of life and He wants you to be happy and enjoy it. Spend time doing things that make you happy with the people you love. Do good for others and enjoy the blessings of God with a thankful heart.
Verse of the Day: Proverbs 15:15
All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
You can choose to be worried and troubled or you can choose to trust God and be happy. The way to a cheerful heart begins in giving thanks to God in every situation. You can always find something to be thankful for even if you have to look a little harder.
Verse of the Day: 3 John 1:2
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
Make sure you take care of your body, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul, good health starts from the inside. Do things that make you smile and bring you joy. Do volunteer work, it not only helps others, it makes you feel happy too. Forgive, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward. But the most important thing you can do for your soul is to spend time with God.
