Recently I had been spending way too much time worrying (and praying) about my future and what wasn’t happening in my life. Sound familiar? Then a couple of days ago I got an epiphany, an “aha” moment when the words “Be happy where you are today” came to my mind. As I repeated those words to myself I realized how many days I was wasting feeling sorry for myself and the joy I was allowing to be depleted from my life….that’s what Satan does best, he tries to take away our joy.
I know with all my heart that this message was God answering my prayers. I started saying and writing in my journal, “I am happy where I am today”, and soon all the concerns I had fell away. My body actually felt lighter and I felt happy and at peace. A miracle indeed!
I am so grateful for receiving these words of wisdom. It wasn’t what I had prayed for, but it turned out to be what I needed…God does work for our good…in mysterious ways!
To keep me “on track”, I created this wallpaper for my ipad using the inkflow app. It won’t turn you into an artist, but it’s fun trying!
Today, choose to be happy where you are. It’s so much better for you and everyone else than the alternative.
