Did you know that God wants you to enjoy life?
Today I wanted to share Ecclesiastes 9:7-10 with you. My pastor shared this with us during a bible study and when I went back and meditated on the content and revelation in these verses. I was so excited. If you haven’t read the book of Ecclesiastes I would recommend you go and read it TODAY. This book gives a lot of instruction for life and happiness. I’m going to stop talking so you can read. Please let me know what you think. I hope it blesses your life like it has mine. God Bless!
Enjoy Life According to Ecclesiastes 9:7-10
Seize life! Eat bread with gusto,
Drink wine with a robust heart.
Oh yes—God takes pleasure in your pleasure!
Dress festively every morning. ( dress up and look good)
Don’t skimp on colors and scarves.
Relish life with the spouse you love
Each and every day of your precarious life.
Each day is God’s gift. It’s all you get in exchange
For the hard work of staying alive.
Make the most of each one! ( Enjoy LIFE)
Whatever turns up, grab it and do it. And heartily! ( be thankful for what you have today ( job, car, ect.)
This is your last and only chance at it,
For there’s neither work to do nor thoughts to think
In the company of the dead, where you’re most certainly headed.
I have decided to enjoy what I have today. Sometimes we feel as if we don’t have enough to enjoy but if you’re breathing you can enjoy the pleasure of breathing–the way air feels moving in and out of your lungs. If you have a cold glass of water, enjoy how it feels as it trickles down your throat.
Today, I will enjoy the little things I often take for granted. God wants me to.
