For the month of November I posted on facebook (as I usually do during November) something every day I was thankful for. On November 13th when my husband of 40 years fell 6 feet from a crane onto concrete and destroyed his right rotator cuff (he will have reverse shoulder replacement eventually), and fractured his right pelvis in 3 places, you can imagine it got a little harder to find things to be thankful for if you just looked at the surface. So I dug deep and God came through and there was always at least one thing I could find joy in each day.
Are you having a hard time finding joy? There were a few people who posted comments on my posts saying they had nothing to be thankful for. They are Christians! They can be thankful for the same thing every day even if they can't find something else. They can be thankful for their salvation. For what Jesus did on the cross! I did gently try each time to point that out, but some just want to be down. It is a choice. You are awake today. Be thankful God gave you another day to tell your love ones how much you love them. If you still have trouble finding joy let's look at Galations 5:22-23.
Galations 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
:23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
So if you can't find joy, love, peace, etc. my question is do you have the Spirit of God living in you? Then ask Him to show you how to find those things and if you don't have the Spirit of God, leave me a comment and I will pray that you receive it if you would like.
BTW all replies come to my email which I check through out the day. I am always happy to pray for needs.
