How can I find joy within things I don’t like very much? Sometimes I resist enjoying something because in my mind I doubt I’ll like it. It’s usually because I haven’t given it a chance. Other times I have tried something and can honestly say I don’t like it. What if I have no choice but to deal with that something I don’t like?

That’s when I turn my focus away from myself and ask, “Does this fill a need? Does this make others happy? Does it feel right in my heart?” If the answer is no, to carry it through I lift the burden and turn it over to God. If the answer is yes, I am probably the one who needs to change.
