Did you forget to smile today? Did you forget to love yourself? Did you forget to show love?
Did you forget to think positive thoughts? Did you forget to help out someone, somehow?
We forget sometimes about what we are supposed to do. Maybe we don’t MEAN to, but it happens. We are to be HAPPY and JOYFUL and LOVING. We aren’t meant to be mean, ugly mannered and mournful. I know sadness and mourning come for a moment, but we are even supposed to take those trials and find the joy in them.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.
PURE JOY IN TRIALS? Yep. Why? Because that kind of attitude will help you MOVE FORWARD (perseverance).
Don’t stay in the pit of sorrow and the valley of pity for long… put that CHIN UP! Get up, get dressed and get ready for whatever you have to face today.
I’m writing this because I KNOW I NEED THESE WORDS SOMETIMES… I feel discouraged about something or someone and I neeeeeeeeeeeeed James 1:2-3.
