What I read today

Joshua 13-14; Psalm 100; Jeremiah 34; Acts 11; Hebrews 13

After reading Psalm 100, I have to remember to be joyful.

Sometimes I forget all the blessings I have been given.  Most of the time I focus on the negative.  The world’s going to hell, things are rough at work, the kids are having a rough time.  I worry about bills and health and doctors and just about everything else.

I need to focus more on all the blessing God has given me.

I need to be joyful at the life God has blessed me with.

I need to be proud and happy that my two daughters are building there lives and have met people that make them happy and who they want to build their lives and families with.

I need to be thankful that Cara and I are able to spend more time with our parents as they get older.

I need to rejoice that God gave me a partner 34 years ago who has stood by me in the best and worst of times.  Who loves me in spite of my shortcomings.

I need to rejoice that God has given me the skills to do my job and a place to work.

I have a ton to be thankful for.  In my 53rd year on this earth, I need to focus more on the gifts I’ve been given then the bad that is going on around me.
