Reading the Daily Word first thing in the morning is a fun spiritual practice because it gets my mind pointed in the right direction before it has a chance to wander down unproductive rabbit holes. It gets me feeling energized and happy. I listen to the audio version in the app on my phone and I get it via email too so I can review it during the day.
The title of the February 21, 2023 message, “I honor God with a Happy Heart” blew my mind! It takes the idea of “making yourself happy, to a whole new level. Making ourselves happy is not only good for us and those around us, but it honors the One who created us.
If you ever feel resistance to the idea of making yourself happy – that it might be self-indulgent – you can think of it instead, as a way of expressing gratitude to your Creator.
The article goes on to say that “having fun is a wonderful spiritual practice.” I thought, “wow!” a spiritual practice? What a concept!”
I know I could benefit from being less serious and having more fun. It felt like this message was God telling me to get over any resistance and to make happiness my first priority.
“I Honor God (Love, Spirit, Source, Life) With My Happy Heart.”
The way to do this, using the DreamBuilder tools, is to honor our feelings of longing and discontent. These are the bread crumbs on the path to our happiest, most fulfilling life.
The Daily goes on to say:
Fun can be as different and individual as the people having it. For some, it’s big and boisterous, and for others it’s intimate and quiet. No matter how I choose to have fun, I’m giving myself a great gift when I make time for it.The Daily Word, February 21, 2023
