Thought of the day:
An element almost unknown to postmodern man is that joy is closely linked to the attitude of being content.
I know, it sounds weird and it doesn’t fit into the subject, but finding in every element that surrounds us the good and constructive parts for the human mind and personality, peace will spread around us and joy will sprout quickly.
Of course, here we do not bring into the equation the lusts of sin and disobedience, which we know generate only a brief state of pseudo-happiness followed by an avalanche of dissatisfaction.
Returning to our subject, we can say that by choosing to be dissatisfied, the joy will quickly depart from us, and when trouble begins to knock on our door we will hasten to quickly blame either ‘fate’ or God, accusing l that he does not take care of us as we would have liked; or that he does not act in accordance with our expectations of Him and of the life of faith.
However, by carefully analyzing our existence in the light of all its details, we understand that from the beginning, the Godhead created a plan of well-being, joy, and happiness for every human being, but the sin we have accepted in our own lives either prevents or it delays this plan in taking effect in our lives.
As for you, if the trials of life have overwhelmed you and the darkness does not seem to move away from you, learn today to put yourself back in the hands of the loving Father of God.
Then, contrary to all the baseless philosophy and ideas of postmodern atheism, choose to believe that He exists and call on His name to thank Him for all that He has made available to you today. You will thus experience all His great Goodness (one through which He will give you all that only in a dream you imagined you will have).
Rejoice in God, and He will rejoice in you, for it is written, ‘I will rejoice in doing good,’ says the Lord, ‘I will truly plant them in this land, with all my heart and with all my soul.’ Jeremiah 32:41
