“For the despondent, every day brings trouble; for the happy heart, life is a continual feast.” Proverbs 15:15
Where do you more often than not find yourself? A feeling of despondency - if it can go wrong it will, or a feeling of happiness - no matter what you face you know life is still good. Are you the eternal pessimist or the forever optimist?
More often than not we find ourselves somewhere in between, sometimes even sliding back and forth from one feeling to the other.
It really comes down to the choices we make in our mind and spirit. Paul says in Philippians 4:8 to “Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”
It’s amazing how an attitude of gratitude can change our perspective. “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Let today be a day of continual feasting.
