Good news makes you feel better. Your happiness will show in your eyes. Proverbs 15:30 NCV
It’s a good day to celebrate God’s blessings.
But before I do, after last week’s post, I realized we don’t share our good news and God’s blessings in our lives as much as we could. We all have much to be thankful for, and sometimes those things can get buried under the yuck of life. Even the small, everyday kind of blessings are worth sharing and celebrating, and it’s sometimes those blessings that matter the most.
I loved the good news my friend Holly shared last week:
“It’s a good news day because I am able to get out of bed, drink clean water, exercise even though I don’t want to, and go to work. My kids are happy and healthy, my grands are adorable, and my parents are still with me. I am loved beyond measure by our Father. Not much more I can ask for, right?”
Amen, my friend!
Doesn’t Holly’s good news make us smile? Doesn’t it inspire us to look at our own lives and be thankful for the many ways God has blessed us?
Let’s do that again today.
Let’s fill this space with good news.
What good news can you share today? How has God blessed you? What in your life is a cause for celebration? Have you achieved something? Have you conquered a fear? Have you experienced a breakthrough in an area of your life? Did your child use the potty chair for the first time? (That brings back great memories for me!) I invite you to fill the comments below with good news.
Okay, so here’s my good news: My husband and I over the weekend crossed over the 600-mile mark on our tandem bicycle this season! Yes, 600 miles so far! That’s just plain crazy. That would be like like traveling from Chicago to Baltimore. Or from our home in Iowa to our favorite vacation spot in Pensacola Beach. I thank God for the ability to bike, and I am grateful we get to do it together. We’re sure having fun out there on the trails and roads!
So, today, may we notice the good news all around us. May we seek to find the good, even when the yuck tries to crowd it out. May we bless others, and share the good we’ve been blessed with. May we celebrate God’s blessings all day long, and help others to do the same.
Thank you for spending a few moments with me here today. As always, it’s a joy to journey through this life with you!
Have a celebrate-God’s-blessings kind of day!
