God wants you to enjoy your life. Jesus said, “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)” (John 10:10). Your days can be filled with an overflowing joy that will spill into the lives of others. You can experience this joy all day if you learn to start your day right— by spending time with God, reading His Word, praying, and listening for His direction. Listening to God each morning fills you with expectancy and favor for a better day, and those days
add up to a better life. The Lord wants you to have Him clearly in sight in order to follow Him.
