My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness, and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips. Psalm 63:5
When your alarm clock goes off in the morning, do you wish you could just stay in bed? Do your struggles and responsibilities weigh you down with frustration, boredom, or hopelessness? If these sentiments describe the way you feel about life, then you are not enjoying the fullness of life that Christ offers. He is not only our Savior but burden-bearer. He wants us to have His joy and peace in our lives abundantly.
Here’s how you can find fulfilment in life:
• Notice God’s gifts, and thank Him for them. Make it a daily practice to thank God for each new day when you wake up from bed. Throughout the day, keep your mind on the good things in your life for which you’re grateful. Don’t forget to acknowledge basic blessings, such as your ability to breathe, eat or smile.
• Turn your worries into prayers. Whenever a worry enters your mind, find a promise of God that responds to it and turn it into a pray point. Know that worry can’t accomplish anything good, but faith in the Lord has great power, since nothing is impossible with God, and trust Him to answer your prayers in the right way at the right time.
• Look for fulfillment in the right place. Stop looking for true and lasting satisfaction in the wrong places, such as through your work, personal pleasure, or accumulation of knowledge or material possessions. Realize that only God can provide the fulfillment you seek. Make a strong relationship with Him your top priority.
Prayer: Lord, I celebrate Your goodness in my life and thank You for Your grace and mercy.
