EVERYONE HAS THEIR OWN DEFINITION OF HARD
I trembled inside when I heard this; my lips quivered with fear. My legs gave way beneath me, and I shook in terror. I will wait quietly for the coming day when disaster will strike the people who invade us. Even though the fig trees have no blossoms, and there are no grapes on the vines; even though the olive crop fails, and the fields lie empty and barren; even though the flocks die in the fields, and the cattle barns are empty, yet I will rejoice in the LORD! I will be joyful in the God of my salvation! The Sovereign LORD is my strength! He makes me as surefooted as a deer, able to tread upon the heights. (For the choir director: This prayer is to be accompanied by stringed instruments.) Habakkuk 3:16–19 (NLT)
YOU CAN’T WAIT UNTIL LIFE ISN’T HARD ANYMORE UNTIL YOU DECIDE TO BE HAPPY… OR GRATEFUL…
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
WHAT ARE YOU THANKING GOD FOR? WHEN ARE YOU THANKING HIM? HOW OFTEN ARE YOU DOING IT?
If I wait for perfect people and perfect circumstances to be grateful, I will have to wait a long time.
