And Nehemiah continued, “Go and celebrate with a feast of rich foods and sweet drinks, and share gifts of food with people who have nothing prepared. This is a sacred day before our Lord. Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!” (NLT) ( Nehemiah 8:10 )
Have you ever thought about giving to others when you celebrate. Do you incorporate generosity into celebration? Isn’t that a way to invite God into your celebration as well? The next time you get consumed with an event like throwing a party or Valentine’s Day try to incorporate blessing those less fortunate as a way of honoring the celebration.
History merely repeats itself. It has all been done before. Nothing under the sun is truly new. (NLT) ( Ecclesiastes 1:9 )
When we gain meaning from anything apart from God we are never completely satisfied. It is only when we seek God that we are truly content in ourselves, our circumstances, and our relationships. While there may be nothing new under the sun, you certainly can count on a relationship with God that is refreshing and satisfying. What are you thankful for that God has been showing you lately?
Today was a normal day, more work, more arguments, more laughing, more having a great time with thee father at work. It was a good day through it all.
As always, Have a Blessed day!
