Finding Joy

“So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.” ― Rainbow Rowell, Attachments

To live a good life, it would make sense, to fill our lives with good things. To live a joyful life, fill your life with joyful things. To live a fun life, fill your life with fun things. God loves the little things that make you smile, that make your heart come alive, and just give you joy.

If we start adding good, fun, joyful things to our lives we will start to see that as the weeks and months and years pass, our “pile of good things” grows. It grows and grows till our life is bursting with good, fun, and joyful things. So that even when life is difficult and we feel like we are drowning, that there is still joy. That even when we don’t know what path to take or what step to take next, that there is still joy.

And God delights in delighting His children.

Try adding one good thing to your life this week, one thing that fills you with joy, happiness, and/or peace.

(NOTE: good things are things that are fun things that are also healthy and beneficial to you and/or the people around you. They are NOT things that are fun but potentially detrimental to you and/or the people around you)
