While I worshipped online at home one morning, I realized the little birds in the garden were chirping.
So was I. Because it’s great to be a Christian, I was chirpy as usual. I can follow Jesus. It is not always easy to be a Christian, but it is a challenge with benefits. People threw a lot of rocks at Jesus, and still do, yet He shines for His followers.
Believers can face each day with optimism. I believe that God exists, that the Word of God is true, and that following Jesus is the way for each of us. As I read my Bible, I turn often to this verse. This is Jesus’ message to all of us. In the Bible, I can find wisdom. Jesus’ wisdom helps me make better decisions and guides me through each day.
Following Jesus gives me direction, adding to my resilience to manage daily routines. God wants us to follow in the steps of Jesus, in our humble human way. Doing so may not be easy, but if we keep going, the blessings of our Lord will keep flowing.
Are you waking up chirpy because you are glad to be a Christian?
