Take a moment to count your blessings.
First of all, you are blessed to be alive in the first place, to know God’s Truth, and to have food on your plate and clothes on your backs. But as humans we are dissatisfied with our belongings, and look to other things, and become jealous of everyone’s cool new iPhone X or the newest car or that VR helmet. These things can become obsessions, and maybe even idols.
What is an idol? An idol is anything and everything you put before God. Idols can be anything from possessions to legit statues that you worship to, and God forbids them.
Let’s take a look at Exodus 20:3: “You shall have no other gods before me.”
So, instead of letting our jealousy or over-admiration of worldly things become idols, we should strive to find positivity and gratefulness in very day.
Have you ever thought your day was boring? With God, no day is boring. Here are three methods to finding joy in everyday things:
Method #1: Count your blessings
Like said above, counting your blessings is a great way to turn a boring day in to a good one. And guess what–the list is endless! There are so many under-appreciated, taken-for-granted things that we are so lucky to have. Take a look around you–there is always, always something to be thankful for!
Method #2: Spend time with God
Take a moment to stop and pray. Spending time with Him can boost your confidence, recharge your spirit, and get you through the day, no matter what is going on! It does;t have to be a chunk of time you take out of your day that you dread like chore, but just an impromptu, five-minute prayer sessions perfect, as long as you enjoy it.
