I’ve had to miss work because my fingers and hands were experiencing excruciating pain. And all that time, my computer was capable of talk-to-type technology! I’m using it right now. No need to spend a dime, much less the hundreds I thought it would cost.
The answer was right in front of me, and I was completely clueless. I think many problems in life are the same way. Being out of shape, for instance, just requires more exercise. It’s a matter of deciding to do something. You don’t have to have access to a gym to get in shape. YouTube has lots of free exercise videos. Heck, you can just walk and get your body in shape.
The Bible says not to be worried and that each day has its own troubles. It also says that God will never give us more then we can handle. He always makes a way to escape temptation. That applies to overeating as much as it does adultery, don’t you imagine?
I think most of us go through life struggling with the day’s challenges, and we forget to really enjoy life. We get into a numbing, joyless routine. All the while, the happiness we desire is within our reach every day. I can say this because I believe that true joy is in the Lord, and He is ultimately all we need to have overflowing contentment.
It’s a good idea to just open our eyes to what is already in our hands and be thankful that it’s enough for this moment. There’s probably more in hand than we realize.
