Sometimes I’m so excited about tomorrow that I fail to enjoy today to its fullest. I know that must sound like a little kid on Christmas eve, but it’s true.
Bliss is a stage which is above any emotional state that is characterized as peace or happiness (feelings of enjoyment, pleasure, and satisfaction). – from wikipedia
Contentment is the key to peace. And bliss. Contentment is referred to as satisfaction in the definition of bliss.
It’s difficult to take the peace away from one who has a heart filled with acceptance.
Where will I find my happy cup of bliss today?
We can start with acceptance of:
– other people just as they are.
– treating yourself with respect
– honoring each other, and yourself
We’re to seek God’s will first. How often do I proceed through my day with God’s will on my mind? Ummm, to be perfectly honest I typically think of God’s will when I’m making a big decision. I’m usually not thinking about God’s will when I’m trying to decide between 2 dippy eggs or scrambled oatmeal (Scrambled o? Yep, there’s a video for that).
So check this out…
You’re blessed when you stay on course,
walking steadily on the road revealed by God.
You’re blessed when you follow his directions,
doing your best to find him.
That’s right—you don’t go off on your own;
you walk straight along the road he set.
You, God, prescribed the right way to live;
now you expect us to live it.
Oh, that my steps might be steady,
keeping to the course you set;
Then I’d never have any regrets
in comparing my life with your counsel.
I thank you for speaking straight from your heart;
I learn the pattern of your righteous ways.
I’m going to do what you tell me to do;
don’t ever walk off and leave me. Psalm 119:1-8
Be a bright spot in someone’s stormy day.
And always be writing the next chapter on the edge of tomorrow…
That’s living the happy cup of bliss in between dreams.
What does your happy cup look like today?
