“You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11)
So often we think that some situations in our lives will never change and always will stay the same. The same e think about ourselves, that we will never change and that we will never be such good and successful as other people are. The only one who will not change is God. Everything else can change. Including you and your situation.
However, those who have no hope that their situation will change, probably also experienced no change. So often we endure things we would not have to endure. Instead of trusting in God and His help, we stare at the circumstances we do not have in our hands.
Here’s the good news: You can enjoy life if you want it. But you have to firmly believe that it is God’s will for you to have real joy. And you should decide to live in this joy. It is important for your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. God does not change, but He can change you if you let Him to come into your life and your situation.
