***Excerpt taken from Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
"Learn to enjoy life more. Relax, remembering that I am God with you. I crafted you with enormous capacity to know Me and enjoy My Presence. When My people wear sour faces and walk through their lives with resigned rigidity, I am displeased. When you walk through a day with childlike delight, savoring every blessing, you proclaim your trust in Me, your ever-present Shepherd. The more you focus on My Presence with you, the more fully you can enjoy life. Glorify Me through your pleasure in Me. Thus you proclaim My Presence to the watching world. "
Do you allow yourself to experience the pleasure and joy that God crafted you for? Contrary to what the world teaches us, it's ok to stop and smell the roses... seriously, stop, savor the blessings God has given you! If you're reading this, you were blessed with with vision, go enjoy God's glory through a sunrise or sunset! If you can taste, or hear or feel or smell... savor it! God created YOU to enjoy life and live it to the full. What do you need to do today to be filled to the brim with appreciation for all the blessings God has bestowed upon you?
John 10: 10
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
