Priorities and Reminders for a Rewarding Today

Your priorities and reminders for a rewarding today is a checklist that will help you live a healthier, happier and more fulfilling day to day life. When we live each day at a time, we are able to deal with issues and concentrate on what needs to be done at the moment. Here are some things to consider.

Forgive and Forget

This is a very hard thing to do especially when you have been deeply wounded. The essence of forgiving is you release yourself from resentment and bitterness. Do you want to always feel sad, bitter and angry towards the one who hurt you? Forgiving will let you release all the pain and make way for peace, restoration and immense joy. Sometimes, forgiving is not easy but pray to God to help you do it. Also when you remember how God forgives you anytime you have sinned, it will be easier to forgive others. Jesus in the Lord’s Prayer instructed us to forgive others so that we too may find the same forgiveness from God.

Pray for All Those Who Have Hurt Your Feelings

Jesus once asked, if you only do well to those who are good to you, how will they differentiate you from those who do not believe in God? We ought not revenge or wish bad things happen to our enemies. We should love our enemies and be good to them. If someone hurts your feelings, don’t hurt them back. Instead pray for them. God can change them into loving, kind and considerate people. You will feel better when you pray for them instead of retaliating.

Let Go of What You Cannot Control

There are situations in life that are way beyond our control. These include other people’s behaviors, calamities and illnesses. When you get stressed over something you cannot change, you only get unhappier and bitterness can start clipping into your heart. Is there anything too hard for God? Leave your burdens into His care, even those situations that seem out of control. He will work through them and ensure everything is okay once more.

Praise and Worship God in Spirit and in Truth

There is nothing that makes the power of God descend into our lives more than when we spend time in praise and worship. Give God the reverence and priority He deserves in your life. Take time every day away from your busy schedule to just worship God. This will add more peace and joy in your everyday life. Acknowledge Him in the morning when you wake up before doing anything else.

Count Your Blessings not Your Burdens

It is easy to wallow in pain and dissatisfaction especially in the world today. When you dwell on burdens, this sacks joy out of you. Is there something God has done for you lately? Has He been good to you? Why don’t you praise Him for that? Why don’t you focus on the blessings that surround you? You are alive and well, have a home and food on your table? These are enough blessings.

All this is not easy but with the help of the Holy Spirit, we can be able to live a life just like the one Jesus Christ lived here on earth. Pray to God for help each day to exercise these steps.
