God gives us joy

Worry solves nothing and serves no good purpose. Instead turn all things over to God. He will send the Holy Spirit and His angels to guide us. He will lighten our load. He will bring joy into our life. All we need to do is to be open to Him.

God loves all of us, totally, unconditionally, without limits. He asks us to love each other in return. The Holy Spirit brings miracles into our lives. He reacquaints us with those we have not seen in years.

He teaches us to share joyfully. To accept what we can change and to leave the rest in His hands. To have faith is to trust implicitly with no reservations, knowing God is in charge. He does not expect us to solve all things but to do the best we can in all aspects of our lives.

To follow the example set for us in His son Jesus. To be compassionate, loving, giving, caring to all those we encounter. We cannot change others, only ourselves. God does not expect us to. He only asks us to live our life as an example of His love.

Treasure His words and His teaching. Look for the joy in life instead of dwelling on the sorrow. Try to make a difference, in some small way. Know that God is all loving and all giving and has a great sense of humor as well.

Ask His assistance and He will be there. Seek and ye shall find. Include God in your every day. Make Him a part of all that you do. See others as He would see them. Be forgiving, not just in some things, but in all things.

Do not advertise every good deed you do, seeking recognition. God already knows, and that is enough! Treat everyone as you would wish to be treated. Make each day memorable in some small way.

Call friends and family often. Don't wait to tell others you care, it might be too late if you do. Never withhold a compliment and never be quick to offer a discouraging word. If you have nothing else to give, remember a smile will do, and count your blessings.
