It is what is in our hearts that has a direct effect on the way we view all of life. If our hearts are filled with bitterness, anger and fear we will be unable to see the beauty and grace our lives are filled with. These negative emotions will suck all the passion and enthusiasm out of you. We will suffer under an unbearable burden, our steps will be weary and our hearts will feel heavy and overwhelmed. We were never intended to live lives of misery, fear and anxiety, but to live life abundantly. This we read in John 10:10(b) "... I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." Therefore guard your heart against these cumbersome and negative thoughts. Focus on your blessings. It is amazing what you can find to be grateful for once you start looking. The funny thing is that once you start focusing on your blessings, it is impossible to be miserable.
