JOY –its what’s for life!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ryan Best @ 1:45 am

Have you ever had those days where it just seemed like you couldn’t do it anymore?  The thought of your daily life challenges and everyday mundane tasks just seem to be the drudgery of life.   These days as I embark on the job of raising teenagers, managing a household, working outside the home and finding time to have fun it seems a little overwhelming!   I must have missed the class in college that educated me on how to do it all with not enough time in the day.

The older I get, the more I realize I’m not interested in just “going through the motions” of living life. No, I want more than that.  I want purpose behind what I do.  I don’t want to live my life in a passive form.  I want to find happiness in my role as a mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend.  

So how does doing laundry, raising teenagers, cooking dinner or any other mundane task of life bring JOY?  The answer is quite simple; my spiritual knowledge steps in and brings me purpose, discipline, focus, real intent and direction for even the hardest days of life.  

Having knowledge of where I came from, how I got here, where I am going, who created me and why I am here, directs my daily life choices.   Because of my spiritual knowledge I can focus on fulfilling my purpose here on the earth.  Have you ever noticed we all have an inward desire to accomplish worthwhile goals.  When we accomplish a worthwhile goal we have immense joy.  This is how we were created.

It’s amazing the power of “Small and Simple” things.  Everywhere we turn we can either do small and simple things that bring us JOY or small and simple things that bring us down.  I know for me I have found that the small act of praying daily has brought immense peace in my life.  As I communicate with my Father in Heaven He directs my daily choices and I’m able to accomplish worthwhile goals.   Through this cycle of praying daily I have found the mundane, difficult, hard tasks of life can continue to have purpose and bring me JOY!
