I have determined to be that much fitter
Get in shape for the great things to come
To live long and have joy in His promise
For every trial, He has bade, we have won
The pursuit of happiness. This is a familiar saying that we have probably heard numerous times before. While family, friends, and other aspects in life may make us joyful, the love for God is true and genuine happiness. Joy is one of the many things that God wants us to experience in our lives. It is natural for us to feel sorrow and frustration when things fall apart and do not go our way. However, while these negative sentiments may linger on, they do not remain forever. We allow ourselves for these feelings to overcome and overwhelm us, but we must not take heed to that. The absence of gratitude and light becomes a dark void in our lives. God is asking us to remain in His love. James 1:2 states:
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.”
Your attitude determines your outcome. Nothing happens in us unless God steps in and give us enlightening opportunities and joyous moments. When we endure trials and tribulations, the outcome will be an immense positive result from God. Trials and tribulations are a way to get us back into shape. God wants us to stay fit and prepare for the great things that He promised. He never takes back His word and will grant His promise. Therefore, have faith and joy in God.
May God Bless You ~
