Enjoying every moment

Everyday we see beauty around us. In my case it is my beautiful wife and my kids. She is such a great wife and a awesome mom to our 3 kids. Every morning she is the one making sure I get up at the right time… and that is no small task. I love my sleep.

Beautiful things make us happy and we love being in or surrounded by beautiful places. In this picture above, we were in Stellenbosch, South Africa and it is a beautiful place to walk. The gardens are just beautiful. This was one of our favorite outings as a family and we enjoyed it very much.

Everyday has its own new challenges and I know that we don’t want to know it, but sometimes it is for our own good that we have challenges. The bible says that we need to grow. Growing is part of life and if there isn’t growth happening, we call it a problem.

Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

James 1:2-4 NLT

I see so many times that people who follow Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, struggle in this area of life. When troubles come, they loose their joy and tend to forget who they are. Now I am not saying it is always easy. As a follower of Christ, I know that it is tough out there. But we need to know who we are. We are children of God. We are a chosen people and God loves us very much.

James teaches us, … consider it an opportunity for great joy. Instead of loosing your joy, use the situation to build up your joy.

But what can we do to keep our joy intact? One thing I have learned is to meditate on the Word of God. When we fill ourselves with His Words we invite Him to be the foundation in our lives. We need a strong foundation to keep on standing when the stroms come.

To enjoy every moment, we need to find joy in every moment. Jesus said He will never leave you alone. That is a promise that we can trust and build our faith upon.

May your days be filled with joy in every moment.

  1. God created us to enjoy us. So we should learn to enjoy both easy and difficult times. For everything works together for those that love Him and are called according to His purpose.
    Bless you.
