Good evening everyone! OH! How I have missed posting on my blog and reading yours as well! 😊 I hope that you all have been doused with prosperity and full of joy during my days away.
These past few months I have been taking advantage of my time away from the office life of corporate America. In April I went to Kansas City, in June I went to Denver and in July I visited Lousiana and Destin, Florida! Each place created such precious memories that I will cherish forever. ❤️
My family and I were fortunate enough to spot plenty of Dolphins during the trip!! I will never forget that moment when I was on the boat in Destin, FL gazing at the blue skies and crystal clear water. Simply in awe of God’s beautiful artwork. I thought about how much God wants me to enjoy every bit of this life that he has graciously blessed me with.
With the daily chaos that life brings, it’s easy to forget that we are here for a purpose.
Let yourself know that it’s okay to enjoy your life!
Enjoyment is the fuel we need to reach the finish line of an endeavor with a good attitude. We may drive ourselves to finish, but somewhere along the way we will probably become bitter and get a chip on our shoulder if we don’t lighten up and take time to celebrate the journey. 😊
Too many people work constantly and stress themselves out, feeling guilty about enjoying and celebrating life when God has clearly ordained and commanded both labor and enjoyment. Ecclesiastes 2:24 says that it’s good for us to relax and enjoy ourselves in the midst of hard work.
Our thinking has been warped in this area. Satan has managed to deceive us, and by doing so he succeeds in keeping people weary and worn-out, feeling resentful and taken advantage of because of excessive work and responsibility.
We need times of refreshment and recreation as well as work and accomplishment. You should be diligent in whatever task God has placed in front of you, but make sure that you find a balance by learning to reward yourself and enjoy life. God thinks you are worth it!
Although it is late in the evening, I wanted to send out some encouragement to my followers. You are loved by the Most High!! Stay strong during the rest of the week. You can do it!! Enjoy your life! ❤️😊
Prayer Starter: “God, I realize now that You want me to enjoy my life and reward myself. Instead of feeling guilty and never stopping for a break, I choose today to experience the joy that You planned for me.”
