Enjoy the Good Stuff as You Go Along
That is true of life in general. We all have routine duties that are not themselves pleasant, but show us good stuff if we open our eyes. We have to flip our clothes in the spring and fall and iron them in between. Neither chore is fun, but both remind us of God’s provision. We have to proof read a document (the epitome of tedium), but that forces us to examine what God has given us the talent and opportunity to write.
You get the idea; God gives us ways to experience joy in the midst of the mundane. We just have to open our eyes. Maybe that’s why He tells us to “rejoice always; pray without ceasing” and “in everything give thanks.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
