No matter what the devil throws at us just be willing to laugh and smile. Don’t think “oh I have cancer… now I have to frown and distance myself from everyone….” NO! If anything you should smile and praise God for He will always provide. Spend time with friends and family. Don’t sit around moping. If you want, watch funny videos and be happy! Even when it’s hard, if you allow yourself to become depressed or sad then you are allowing the devil to steal your joy. Just praise God for He will provide, and do what makes you happy!
Have you ever had one of those days where frustration has threatened to over take you? That’s where I sat, on the verge of tears.
Situations occurred that were out of my control, things I was depending on and was now powerless to do anything about. People proved unreliable and undependable. Tasks that should have been simple were proving to be difficult at every turn.
I was emotionally spent. Physically weary. Every ounce of me wanted to give up. I wanted to complain. I wanted wrongs to be made right.
Have you ever looked around you at all the seemingly joyful people and wondered where they got their joy? Or how they maintained it? Joy is different from happiness. [more]
Do you ever find it hard to trust God? A repeated proclamation over several days taught me a lesson in childlike delight and trusting God.
