Have A Great Day!

Instead of worrying about all those things you cannot control,

Live–enjoy life to the fullest every waking moment.

Smile–at others and watch their response to you.

Laugh–a hearty belly laugh is good for the soul and lifts heavy spirits.

Skip–with a joyful heart as you navigate this day.

Dance–to your own song ringing down in your soul–don’t think about what others will think.

Give–of yourself, your talents, your excess resources–so others will know just how blessed they are to know you.

Pray–always communicate with the One who makes it all possible and worthwhile.

Praise–God for His goodness and for all He has done, is doing, and will do in your life.

Witness–tell someone else about the love of Jesus–not in words, but in deeds–let them see your light shine in what you do.

Rest–at the end of the day rest your body–take care of what it needs so you can get up tomorrow and do it all over again.

Reflect–before closing your eyes after the events of the day–think about everything you did and how you can do it better–tomorrow!

Have a Great Day!

Resting in Jesus!

There are times when life gets so busy that we cannot think clearly because we’re trying to do so much!

Have you ever noticed that the more you attempt to do at one time, the greater the likelihood that mistakes will be made and you’ll have to go back and fix things?

There is an old adage that states, “haste makes waste” and it is still relevant today.

I have discovered that if I attempt to do things in a hurry, without taking my time, I’m more prone to mess it up and have to go back and redo it or start all over again.  What I’m trying to do now is to learn how to rest in Jesus, so I can start with a clear mind–no cobwebs, no distractions, and can see clearly everything that must be done before me.  When I finish, I make an attempt to review what I’ve done so I can assure myself that everything is right; especially since I hate re-doing anything because it is so time consuming.

At any rate–let’s try harder to do it right the first time–so we won’t have to re-visit anything.  We can do this when we learn to rest in Jesus, trust Him with all our heart, soul, and mind and stop leaning on our own understanding.  Rest in Him and see everything with clarity!
