Are you Sad and Unhappy?
Not all sadness and unhappiness is bad. Sometimes such low times can motivate positive, godly change in our lives.
However, sadness and unhappiness can be the warning sign that we need to make changes in our walk with God-and that can lead to contentment.
We can use our valleys to remind us that only God can fill the emptiness in our lives.
Paul was able to say, “I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.
I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength” (Phillippians 4:11-13).
Only Jesus can move us from sadness and unhappiness to peace and contentment.
Pray: God, I pray that when I am experiencing unhappiness in my life, that I will be motivated to turn back to You.
This is My Word of Hope for You, my friends.
