…Tell them to have faith in God, who is rich and blesses us with everything we need to enjoy life. 1 Timothy 6:17 (CEV)
Some people think following God is going to make their life boring. They won’t be able to do the things they used to do. They won’t be able to hang out with the people they used to. While some of this may be true (things they won’t be able to do), God gives us His version of a joyful life in exchange for what we gave up. We can know the joy of having a deep, lasting friendship. We can feel the satisfaction that comes from caring for others. We can have a life filled with the richness and blessings God has in store for us. We can truly enjoy life – the one God has planned for us.
Prayer: God, thank you for reminding me I can still enjoy life. Show me things in my life I should give up to be replaced by the richness and blessings you have in store for me. Help me to truly enjoy life the way you intended. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
