There are some times in life that everything we do seems completely mundane. We go through the motions day after day, and while nothing may necessarily be wrong, we can easily get in a place where it feels like nothing is, or will, ever change. We do not really have a reason for feeling like this, as we are still very thankful and content for where we are in life. Yet everything just seems, well, boring. Slowly, the “boredom” turns little things into a stress, nothing seems to go right, and you find yourself just wanting to break down at every little thing. Why you seem to be an emotional wreck, you cannot quite pinpoint, therefore leaving you with no idea how to get out of this “funk.” So, what are we to do? How do we get out of this odd emotional and mental place that we cannot even begin to explain? While things of this world, whether watching a funny movie, playing your favorite game, or hanging out with close friends, may help for a moment, one thing that we can do that will undoubtedly bring us out of the confusing way we feel, is to praise God, rejoice in Jesus, and sing to our King.
There will be many times here on earth that we will experience things that we as humans cannot wrap our heads entirely around. Whether it be through a tragedy, a blessing, or simply one of those days that just keeps tediously going and going, God is still working in mysterious ways (Romans 11:33). We must remember that even in the quiet moments of life, through the everyday chores and school work, God hasn’t stopped loving us, guiding us, or working on our behalf (Exodus 14:14). Therefore, when life becomes just a bit dull, we must remember to stop dwelling on what our eyes see here on earth, and instead, focus them on the bigger picture – God (Ephesians 1:20-21). Truly, there is no better way to get through the everyday life of this world, than to be in communication and dwell on the one who has overcome it (John 16:33). Not only will it lift your spirits, but you will remember you are not in this race alone, nor are the monotonous days that seem to pass by without a clear meaning, pointless. In the end, we have innumerable reasons to rejoice, every, single, day. Think about it, we have been given the wonderful opportunity to be the children of God (1 John 1:9). All we must do is believe, confess our sins, surrender our lives (Ephesians 2:8). Now, don’t just think it, say it out loud to yourself, shout it from the roof tops. We are God’s children! He has made us in the image of His son! Not only that, but Christ has given us numerous eternal gifts and promises that don’t only apply to when we are in heaven, but as we go through each day here on earth. God loves us and has claimed us as his own. He is our Father, and we are his children (Galatians 3:26), how can we keep from rejoicing? It doesn’t matter what your week may look like, how busy, boring, or difficult, God is still on His throne, singing over us (Zephaniah 3:17), breathing life into us (Acts 17:25).
Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.”
