I walked out of Safeway with a new perspective on life. It was as if God was saying, this is my message for you today. Please take it to heart...and oh I am trying. It made me think of how God wants us to have joy. Joy in even in the hardest of situations.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds." -James 1:2
We need find the positive in it all, to know that He is in control no matter what happens. It makes me think of my lovely grandmother that is now with her Saviour. She was such a joyfilled person. I only remember her being mad one time. Once, I can't even go an hour without being upset by something. She would say, "Tiff, you need to be careful to plant flowers in your garden and not weeds." She was trying to tell me to remember the wonderful things in life not the bad things. Like it says in Philippians:
"Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."-Philippians 4:8
So today, I pray you have a joy-filled day! Rest assured that God is in control, He's got you covered! So go to Starbucks buy a coffee and be happy :) Oh and pick one up for me ;)
