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: Psalm 16:11
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Until we find the path that God has set for us we will have a longing to be complete. The only thing that can fill the emptiness is the love of God. When we are in His presence we feel a sense of wholeness and when we are on the path that leads to God, no matter what is going on around us, we are able to feel joy. How wonderful to be on the path that was laid out for us by our Creator.
