Trusting Tuesdays: Just live your life!
“So I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat, drink, and be glad. Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun.” (NIV) Ecclesiastes 8:15
I knew God had wonderful things in store for me this year. I went through a storm last year, which allowed me to grow closer to God and depend on Him more. In the midst of that storm, I learned that God is the only source of my joy. Through the storm, I learned to depend on the Lord for my happiness when I would feel homesick, and although all persons close and dear to me continue to live hundreds of miles away, I choose to be glad rather than be weary.
Consequently, this year I planned a series of events that will allow me to enjoy my life and be glad….and one of those events included skydiving! So on this Tuesday, I’m trusting God to supply me with strength, happiness, and opportunities to enjoy life.
(Skydiving was actually one of my long-term goals I set as a teenager. After going through college and getting settled in to life as a working adult, the time had finally come for me to fulfill my goal…and I did it. I jumped out of a plane and began to fly!)
