Finding Joy in Everyday Moments



Hello Beautiful, 


Today, we will talk about how we can find joy throughout moments in our day. To be honest, when I first chose this topic, I didn’t know what to say. As the day went on, I realized I started getting irritated with a few things happening around me. As I began to act out of that irritation, I was reminded of this week’s topic. All I could do was stop and tell the Lord about my feelings. 



Ladies, because we are emotional beings it’s important to learn how to reel in those emotions. This will keep us out of a lot of trouble. Not only do we have emotions that play a role in how we react to things, but also we have to deal with hormones. Our hormones can have us acting like different people if we are not careful. In today's blog, we will explore ways to cultivate gratitude, find beauty in simple moments, and find joy in serving others. These ways will show us how to be intentional about having more joyful days in our lives. 



Gratitude


The first way we can find joy in our day is by cultivating a heart of gratitude and thankfulness. This is something that I have noticed as I have been on a journey of being more intentional about things in my life. Sometimes we can get so caught up in going from one moment to the next that we forget to be thankful for that moment. So many things can happen in a day, so our goal should be to be grateful for the good and the bad moments.1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Being thankful for everything we encounter,  brings freedom to our thinking. Rather than focusing on how things turned out for us in the day, we should be grateful that God kept us through it all. Every day is the day that the Lord has made, so let us enter each day with gladness and gratitude. Remember that our life is not our own and that God has a purpose. 


Beauty In Simple Moments


The second way we can find joy in

our day is by finding the beauty in the simple moments. Now we all have goals and dreams that we are trying to achieve. We don’t have to wait to get to the next big thing before we can be content. We can find joy in enjoying someone's smile, having a cup of our favorite tea, or even admiring a task that has been completed. What better way to find joy than admiring God's creation? God made everything beautiful in its timing. No matter if it's our first step to working out or losing 50 pounds after a long journey. Wherever we are we can find joy in that moment. 



Helping Others


The last way we will talk about is finding joy in serving others. Finding joy in serving others can be tricky.  Everyone knows the frustrations that we can experience when we help others. The Bible says,” Let’s not get weary in well doing for at the proper time we will reap the harvest.” (Galatians 6:9-10) How do we find joy in these moments? We can be thankful that we can provide something that someone may need. It could be us who need the help. Remembering who Jesus is and how He made the ultimate sacrifice can also help us find joy. He died on the cross for us knowing how difficult and stubborn we are. It also feels good to help others. So think about good things at all times. 



Finding joy in every moment of our day can be difficult, but finding the silver lining makes it easier. God is so wonderful that he provides us a way out of trouble and leads us to the good. All we have to do is take moments out of each day and talk to God. God will help us see the beauty in every situation that we face. The Bible says to pray about everything and don’t worry about anything. 



Thank you so much for stopping by and spending time with me. I hope that this blog has blessed you today!


Until next time,

Pastor Quay
