I think with all the shocking news we hear every day and the things going on, we sometimes forget there’s still good in this world. We should take time to pray for God’s people everywhere, the lost, hurting, and oppressed. But there’s still beauty in God’s design and nature and it’s okay to laugh and enjoy it.
Take some time to enjoy a sunrise and take in the beauty of the flowers and sky. Schedule a game night with your family or play ball with your kids. Smile, dance, sing, and praise God for each one of them. Read a book (the Bible has some wonderful stories), it’s okay to watch a funny movie and enjoy your life in the middle of the heartache that seems to never cease around us.
Because at the end of the day, we know who has us in the palm of His hand. Take loving care of your mental, physical, and spiritual health so you will be ready to care well for others when the need arises.
There are still good people, and good news to share. It’s okay to laugh and experience joy. Smiles and laughter are contagious- so spread some love today. Enjoy your family, friends, and kids. Take a break from the news and read the Good News. Take respite in the only One who can offer complete peace and rest under the shelter of His great wing.
It is my hope this is a resource for good news that leaves you awe-inspired by the Creator and hopeful, that there is a reason to smile, laugh, and love, as we put our faith in Christ for a better life ahead.
