Have you had your Joy Juice today? Please don’t let any of it go to waste!
These days most of us are trying to be more frugal. We don’t like to waste a thing! We want to stretch our paycheck as far as it will go. We buy in bulk sometimes so that we get a better deal. We search for the sales and use coupons to make wise purchases. How many of you parents tell your children to eat everything on their plate because they don’t need to waste their food?
One of my personal priorities (as I grow older) is to not waste time! Time is such a valuable treasure. How many hours, days, weeks do we waste worrying about things that we have absolutely NO control over? Why do we choose to torment ourselves with needless worry and anxiety rather than choosing to have faith in a loving Father that knows what is best for us? He tells us in 1 Peter 5:7: “Cast your cares upon the Lord for he cares for you.”
Do you find it difficult to “trust” because of being hurt in the past? Be reminded that you are special in God’s eyes and He cares for you! Make this verse personal. ”I can cast all my burdens upon the Lord, because He cares for ME!” There’s no need to hold on to those problems that fill you with anxiety. Exercise your faith and let go of them; allow God fill your heart with peace and joy!
Never waste your time by throwing pity parties. Find the joy God desires for you today by casting your cares upon Him.
