God is issuing you an invitation to a celebration that is just too good to miss! Right here, right now, even in the midst of the challenges you face every day, God is waiting for you to say yes to begin celebrating the joy in your life.
Sometimes we can miss out on the celebration simply because we spend too much time and energy waiting to be happy. You may be tempted to tell yourself that the real celebration will begin . . . when I meet Mr. Right . . . when I land the promotion . . . when the kids are grown . . . when I retire . . . Yet, as the weeks roll into months, and the months roll into years, we can miss out on celebrating the blessings God has placed right in front of us. We can spend so much of our lives waiting to be happy, that we miss out on laying hold of the joy that God has for us each and every day.
All we need is a change in perspective—knowing where (and how) to look for God’s blessings in your life and celebrating with a thankful heart. Before you know it, you’ll start celebrating the joys that have been hiding in plain sight. You’ll discover there’s more to celebrate than you ever imagined.
Celebration is contagious. As you begin celebrating the work God is doing in your life, it won’t be long until others notice and join in the party. You’ll find that once you start celebrating, it’s hard not to bubble over with generosity and hope. Like confetti, gratitude and appreciation will fill the air. You’ll be grateful you said yes to God’s invitation.
My hope and prayer is that, throughout this study, you rediscover the joy that comes with being a child of God and that, in response, you’ll find yourself inviting others to celebrate the goodness of God, too.
