The most grieved thing in everyone’s life is not having or getting what they want. We’re far better at noticing the things on our list that we didn’t get than the countless things we did and actually needed. The Bible is full of promises; the least of which is God’s promise to give us what we need. When we start looking at life through that lens, we see we’ve been cared for in immeasurable ways. And while it may not be on our list of wants, we all want to be cared for. Is it possible that simple joy comes from being thankful for the simple things? Maybe that old cliche is cliche because it’s true, and gets repeated as a result.
