When you wake up each morning, God sends you a special delivery of joy. It’s like it comes knocking at the door of your heart every day. The problem is that some people never answer the door. It’s right there, month after month, year after year saying, “Come on! Let me in! You can be happy! You can cheer up! You can enjoy your life!” The way to answer the door is to get up and choose an attitude of faith and expectancy by declaring that “today is going to be a good day.” When you start the day like that, you are choosing to receive the gift of joy that God sent to you.
Today, make up your mind to answer the door to joy! Get up every morning and say, “Father, thank You for another beautiful day. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to enjoy this day because You are faithful. I’m going to brighten someone else’s life. I am choosing to receive Your gift of joy and passing it on to others because I love You, and I know that I am called for Your purposes!”
First of all, God has a plan for each and every person in this entire world. He didn’t just make people and then forget about them.
I chose you when I planned creation. Ephesians 1:11-12
You were not a mistake, for all your days are written in my book. Psalm 139:15-16
So God loves all of us and thinks about us all the time. We all go through a time in our lives where we get mad at God. I sure have. Things don’t go our way, we don’t feel as pretty or as able to fit in as everyone else. You pray all the time for that one thing or that one guy that you realllly want. And you don’t get it. It feels like He isn’t listening to you. But in reality you aren’t listening to Him. You’re asking for a specific thing to go right in your life. When you pray God replies with yes, no, or wait. And we don’t always like that. But he’s God, and I promise there is a point to his answers.
Also, you just happen to be a princess. If God is the Heavenly Father, the king of kings, and you have a relationship with him, he’s your father, making you a princess. And I’m pretty sure princesses don’t get treated badly or disrespectfully. Because they don’t let it happen.
And it is my desire to lavish my love on you. 1 John 3:1
Simply because you are my child and I am your Father. 1 John 3:1
I offer you more than your earthly father ever could. Matthew 7:11
For I am the perfect father. Matthew 5:48
He loves you more than you can even comprehend. and has made you in his image. So you need to treat yourself that way. Don’t allow someone who doesn’t treat you like the princess you are into your life. They are not good enough for you. The bible talks about relationships a lot. It clearly states that godly relationships, found at the right time, are absolutely wonderful. Regardless of who it is, if they are a good Christian and love the lord as much as you do, they will treat you right. Sometimes you just have to wait. And that’s what I’m doing, doesn’t matter how long it takes, because I know he’s got a plan and the perfect guy for me is coming.worshipgifs)
