Everything is awesome!

Recently I went with my family to see The Lego Movie.  The theme song in that movie is titled, “Everything Is Awesome!”  These are the lyrics to the chorus:

Everything is awesome
Everything is cool when you’re part of a team
Everything is awesome, when we’re living our dream

Well, what if you don’t feel like you are part of a team?  What if you aren’t living your dream and everything is not awesome?  Everyone has this feeling at least once in their life.  Some live their whole lives with this feeling.  When I was growing up, a very important person in my life frequently said to me, “You can always find something happy in any situation; you just have to look hard enough.” 

Sometimes it’s difficult to hear this advice.  Sometimes you just might want to stay mad, sad, anxious, depressed, etc., and that’s alright; for a short time.  After a while, it is important to ask yourself, “How is this working for me?”  If it’s working to continue to feel down, great!  Keep feeling that way.  Chances are though, it’s not working so well. 
I would challenge you to think about things this way.  Before you were on anyone else’s team, you were on God’s team.  You were created in His image.  He picked you.  Then, after He created you, He formed your path in life…..your dream.  So, when you are feeling down and looking for something happy, looking for your team, or your dream, look to God first.  Sit down with a pen and paper and look at your life.  Make a list in two columns; one side of things that are working well for you, the other of things that aren’t working out so well.  Then, pray about it.  Look for direction from the leader of your team. 
2 Timothy 3:16-17 says, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be equipped for every good work.”  God wants you to be equipped for EVERY good work.  Not everything that you encounter will be “good work.”  However, if you look hard enough, you will likely find some piece of God’s awesomeness.  Choose to be on God’s team and follow your dreams.  On God’s team, anything is possible.
