on repeat this week: Dear Me
…do I hear you —your circumstances & situation aren’t easy right now.
I get how you want to desperately change some things. Thing is, sometimes you can’t change circumstances — but maybe, you can change how you see.
And there’s ridiculous relief in that: Situations can’t make joy — but how we see can. We may not be able to change a situation today, but we can change how we see.
So that’s quietly all today: see grace, see good, see God. “See things from His perspective.” Col.3:1MSG So let’s just go out there today & ENJOY!
Circumstances don’t determine joy — as much as how you see.
And honest, Joy isn’t about how much our lives have — but how much we ENJOY our lives… how much we enjoy God.
That’s all for this weekend, friends.
Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.
Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again
