First of all, thank you for being here and doing this daily encouragement with me.
I always post about these on my Instagram stories if you ever want to join there you can find me @BrookeRadio
I always like to pull inspo out of my devotional book and its called: Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence by Sarah Young (you can purchase HERE)
Do you ever feel like you take things for granted?
It's easy to get caught up in the mindset of how things just aren't going your way.. but that's when our mind and thoughts start to get cloudy, yucky and just make us miss the blessings around you.
In the devotional for today it says;
When you focus on what you don't have or on situations that displease you, your mind also becomes darkened. You take for granted life, salvation, sunshine, flowers, and countless other gifts from me.
Reading this it's so true.. because when something goes our way, we want to continuously focus on that until it's fixed and how we want it.. when instead, we should really be looking at all the GOOD around us and focusing on those things.
Our story is already written.. we can't dwell on things that don't go our way because maybe it's just not supposed to go our way.
Pray this prayer today: Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for writing my story. Thank you for the blessings around me. Today, I pray that you help me to focus on the good around me and all the blessings you continue to give me. I pray that the negative thoughts in my mind are suppressed and that the joy and happy thought in my mind are revealed. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
