why I'm smiling today
Why am I smiling today? That's a good question.
Let's begin with John 3:16, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." God loved not only me, but this broken hearted world, so much that he was willing to send His ONLY Son for you and I. His one and only Son, died a cruel and unjust death. There was no fault in Jesus, yet he died for us -and we're full of faults- because He loved us. But it was more than just a death, there was a resurrection, and praise God for that resurrection, because without it, you and I would have no hope for the life to come!
Here's another reason why I'm smiling: I'm blessed. I've said it a lot, and I'll say it again, I just took a breath, and I'm blessed. God's given me life! I'm blessed because I have good health. Not everyone is able to say that...there are kids (not only kids but people of every age) that are sitting in hospitals clinging on to their lives. Parents who are desperately praying for their children to have one more day of life.
I haven't had to go through that, and I truly thank God for the health He's given me. If you're reading this right now and you are going through something similar, know that I'm praying for you and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
I'm blessed. I have a supportive family and friends, we go to church, we pray together, we sing together, we help each other. Not everyone gets to say that, unfortunately. And I ALWAYS want you to know that you most certainly have a friend in me!
I'm smiling because God has my future in the palm of His hands. There's no better feeling than knowing that He's going to take care of me no matter what. Relationships, hard times, my family, jobs...all of these things He has in His hands. And because of that, I don't have to worry. I'm forever thankful for that peace. <3
My smile is growing. I have had people personally tell me that my blog and posts have given them a new perspective and hope. That they want to try to be better for God. Emotionally, I don't even know how to respond other than thanking God and giving Him the glory.
That smile of mine is continuing to grow even more as I type this. I can't seem to hold it back. Why are you smiling today? What makes you happy? Let me know! :)
