Sometimes I find myself wondering through my days and accomplishing nothing in particular. Most of us had have days that are not satisfying, nor are they fulfilling. At times it leaves me feeling depressed or not worthy. What was good today that I can celebrate? Something that I can feel good about?
When I have had days like that I can look back and say was God apart of that day? Most likely, the answer is no. Growing up I was filled with discouragement. Most of my days I felt inadequate not good enough, and went to bed with the feeling that I will never be successful. Many of us had had lives or moments in our past and with our family’s that have left us feelings of discomfort. Conflict has driven out any peace and well-being.
Philippians 4:8 says, ” Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable.
Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Today, in order to stay close to God so he can comfort me; even in the midst of a blah day. I am going to find one thing worthy of praise about my day. Each night I will build this list and write one thing down before I go to bed. By the end of the Christmas break I will have a whole list of days to reflect on that I can thank God for!
I will begin with yesterday. I sat down to have lunch in a restaurant by myself. I was okay with it and was going to read while I ate. BUT, I would of rathered have a friend to visit with. God provided that for me! I had four friends that ended up being there the same time as me! God knows exactly what I need and when I need it! This is my praise worthy note for yesterday! What is yours?
