When we trust in our God, in Jesus our savior, it is so much easier to have hope. When we look for examples and reminders of His love all around us it is so much easier to enjoy it.
I have been making a conscious decision to look for those lately. To listen for them. And every time I see one, it makes me smile. And then I realize God gave me that smile. And I smile at people in town, and they smile back. And the joy just keeps going. It’s that easy. And stress melts away because it’s not important. A cycle of joy is so much more. And really it takes very little effort.
