Enjoying Your Life

Have you ever thought about your life....or thought about your day? Do you often think that the only days that you can enjoy in your life are the days that you are on vacation or are off from work or when you get to go to a movie or shopping or just to take a nap? I think that we have probably all thought this my dear friend, but the TRUTH of the matter is: Jesus died so that we can all enjoy an abundant life all the time, every day.

"Whatever may be your task, work at it heartily, as for the Lord and not men, knowing that it is from the Lord that you will receive the inheritance which is your reward." Colossians 3:23

Jesus wants us to enjoy everything in our life, EVERYTHING, yes, EVERYTHING. From paying your bills, to going and buying groceries, to taking the kids to school, to weeding your garden and cutting your grass and yes, doing laundry(pray n wash).

You're thinking, I can't enjoy some of those things! Yes, you can! You can enjoy life if you determine to do so. How? It's really simple.....say to yourself that you are going to enjoy every aspect of your life because Jesus died so that I could have unspeakable joy.

Errands, cooking, bills, your job, the future, retiring, college for the kids, yard work, moves, the list could go on and on.............enjoy it, God gives us nothing that we can not handle and HE knows our every need.

Start today and start enjoying your life!
