Intangible Gains..

“Life looks good on you… On all three of you”…

This was a comment someone made to my family the other day…

Now, if you know anything about our lives over the past 2 1/2 years, then you know at times, life has been way less than good… Because it’s felt altogether painfully unfair…

So then, well, how can life look “good” on us?..

How can we can we be so consumed with where we are in life that we glow?.. That we radiate an intangible joy?..

Honestly, I believe it’s the choices we’ve made… To choose to find a silver lining in each situation life has presented us with… To choose God’s strength, grace and dignity over bitterness, anger and hatred…

To want to be better in one single moment than in the one before…

And it hasn’t been a cake walk… There have definitely been significant ups and downs, but then God has always provided us with His goodness… As we keep choosing His peace, rest, balance and ability to focus in on the good…

And… Well… I believe this mindset… The way we approach life… I believe it’s available to every person wanting a better life…

That each one of us can genuinely cultivate a flourishing lifestyle…

And, to me, this lifestyle doesn’t come with immediate tangible gain… No, first it comes with intangible gain… Gains that will cause us to look good… To glow… To overflow with the joy of the Spirit… With life from the intangible world that surrounds us…

So, if you’re feeling down today… Please know that there is an intangible world out there… Filled with intangible gains in life… Gains that will always outweigh and outdo any tangible gains we could ever gain… And with these intangible gains, life will definitely look good on each one of us…
