Happy News

Hello! Please stay tuned for more goodness. Coming to you tomorrow, rather than today since I was a little under the weather.

In the meantime, please make it a point to watch and/or listen to the videos I think you’ll really enjoy.  Listening while getting ready for work seems to be a good time for me (wink wink)  😉

Always from the heart,

Lisa

P.S.

Thank you for your sympathy/empathy when I am unable to update www.lisasdailyjoy.com as often as I’d like.  You’re awesome!  Here’s to a great week!

And, Say THAT Everyday Out Loud! Dare ya! (talking to myself, too ;P)

If you were given a five minute time limit to compile a list of things in which to be thankful, would you feel pretty humbled and appreciative of what we have going for us?  You think your list would be rather long?  We have life.  We have one life, in fact.  A life that really ought to be cherished and appreciated.

Do you agree that it all begins from within?  It is essential that we find our inner peace; an acceptance and love toward one selfThen, we can love others the way Papa would like…properly.

It is to my understanding that having the quality of humbleness is one of the pieces needed to find our inner peace.  What does it mean to be humble, anyway?

So, I think that if we accept our faults, learn from our mistakes, “pass His tests” and, keep on trekkin’, we’ll gain inner strength, clarity, patience and love.  The miracles and blessings will be abundant.  And, our feeling of being connected with the Universe will lend itself to ULTIMATE gratitude towards ALL beings and things.

Yes.  We all feel resentment, disappointed, frustrated, pissed, etc. toward others, sometimes, but, we certainly shouldn’t exert too much energy toward individuals that bring upon such darkening emotions.  When they do come to mind, we ought to, rather, pray that they decide to start shining bright and be a super star each and every day in whatever way they choose…

But, seriously.  I think, in a nutshell, that if we just CHOOSE to be grateful for everything, each and every day, our hearts and souls will be ignited.

No.  I take that back.  I don’t think.  I know it to be true.  🙂

Love you,

Lisa

P.S.

Let me leave with Kid President.

 

Deuteronomy 8:6 – 18     When you have eaten and are satisfied, praise the Lord your God for the good land he has given you.

“Blessed are You, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth.”

We Can Be Rest Assured. Thank Goodness! Today’s Bread ~

Life sure is filled with ups, downs, topsy turvies, lefts and righties, ins and outs…sure is a whirl wind!  And, we sometimes have a hard time dealing with the fast-paced lives we live…

If only it could slow down; if only I made more money; if only I would have done this or done that, or, vice versa.  Well, we all know how dwelling on the past doesn’t get us anywhere.  It only stirs the pot, getting the water going at an even more rapid boil.  Maintaining a “simmer”, I think is the way to go.

We ought to know by now that Papa is there through thick and thin.  And, I believe that if we keep our faith on Him, the crazy stinky parts of our lives are just His way of “screaming” loudly to us, “Hang on with me!  The storm is almost over!  Soon you’ll see your rainbow, promise!”

This is a relief, or, should be.

We can trust that He’s ‘working out His purposes for a greater good’.  ‘In every circumstance, we can trust the wisdom of our faithful and loving God.’

To piggy back off of that…I also believe that Papa likes “playing games”.  This is what I call it.  Papa gives us little (or big) tests to see if we’ll falter.  He wants us to pass.  I believe that if we stay “riding His wave” then our rewards will be abundant in so many ways.  On the other hand, God will feel disappointed, yet He’ll forgive, but, this will then lead to less “reapage”.  😛

So, essentially, for what is it that we’ll ask?  Is this the essential question?!  😉

Something to think about…

Love,

Lisa

John 11:21 – 35     Lord, if you had been here, my brother would not have died.

“Father, You have carried me through hard circumstances before.  Thank You for teaching me to trust Your heart of love even when I don’t understand what You are doing in my life.”
