  1. I love how God connects ideas and today’s theme that is showing up is that Eternal Life is not just for the after but for the here and now. Thank you for the well-written poignant reminder, Kendra!

  2. I just looked up Psalm 16:9 in the NLT and it reads beautifully too: “No wonder my heart is glad, and I rejoice. My body rests in safety.

  3. Thank you so much for your inspiration, you lift my spirit with all your positive thoughts. 😉

  4. Your inspiration was just what I needed to hear today! I need to remember to live a Happy life – All the time. Reminding myself that I am Saved by the Blood & Grace of God.

    Thanks for a inspirational post!

  5. That is one of my favorite movies too. Life goes by too fast to always be focused on tomorrow. Rather than spend your whole life waiting (waiting to graduate, waiting to get married, waiting to have kids, waiting for kids to grow up, etc) enjoy each stage when you are in it.

  6. Love the MSG version of Psalm 16:9! This is exactly what I needed to read this morning. My husband and I have been stressing over the idea of having another baby…{i want another, he does not}. But, you’re right…I just need to live…with him…and leave it all up to God! He has my perfect will at heart anyway and He already knows my plan! {Jeremiah 29:11}
    Have a wonderful rest of your day!

  7. Happiness has been at the forefront of my thoughts lately, and your post really hit home. Thank you for sharing such thought-provoking words, Kendra.

  8. The word God keeps putting on my heart this year is JOY. And as I’ve looked up verses about it, so many of them say things like, “in His presence is fullness of joy.” God says His name is “I am” so where is His presence? Right here. Not the past. Not the future. In this moment–so that’s the only place we can find joy and happiness too, as you so beautifully said!
