God gave us this life to enjoy

Life is full of hardship and pain, no doubt about it. But there’s so much to enjoy! God has given us so much! No, we can’t live in continual happiness. But we can have joy – no matter what. Because He’s made available so much for us to enjoy. The little things. A good book. A sunset. Sweet smelling flowers. The ocean so deep and wide. Poetry. Family. I challenge you to find joy in the little things in life. God would want it that way!! We have so much to be thankful for. For He is good!!


  1. In 1 Chronicles 16, there was a song of thanks to the Lord. At verse 27, it sings of joy.

    1 Chronicles 16:27 – Splendor and majesty are in his presence. Strength and joy are where he is.

    Thank you for your comment on my post.

    Soli Deo Gloria!

  2. You are so right! The joy of the Lord is our strength! I’m so thankful. It’s an excellent point indeed!
