Proverbs 15:15 (ESV)
All the days of the afflicted are evil,
but the cheerful of heart has a continual feast.
A new driver for an interstate trucking company was having a difficult time. He found the long cross-country trips extremely tiring. The older driver who traveled with him, however, seemed to thrive on those long trips. He always seemed to look as fresh at the end of the ride as he did at the beginning.
One day, the young man asked the older what his secret was. "Well, it's really all in the way you look at it," he replied. "While you went to work this morning, I went for a ride through the country."
Our focus will determine whether life is work or a ride in the country. We are privileged to be here in this day and age. God is doing awesome things right before our eyes and He’s allowing us to take part!
Let's get excited about taking a ride with the Lord today! He has great things to show us and teach us along the way!
Dear Lord, we thank You for the ride You are taking us on today. Help us look at the things in our life as part of the adventure that You have for us. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
