|“This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.”|
(Psalm 118:24, NLT)
Happiness isn’t just a random feeling; happiness is a choice. It’s a decision that we have to make each and every day. All throughout life, you’re going to have plenty of opportunities to lose your joy. We all go through disappointments. We all have times when things don’t go our way. It’s easy to let circumstances make us sour and dejected until we end up just going through the motions of day-to-day living. But if you’re going to live in victory, if you’re going to thrive the way God intends, you’ve got to make the decision that you’re going to enjoy your life. You can choose to be happy in spite of your circumstances, every single day.
Today, remember, this is the day that the Lord has made! Rejoice and be glad in it! As you choose joy, you are tapping into His strength which will carry you to victory all the days of your life!
|A Prayer for Today|
|“Father, thank You for another day to bless and serve You. I choose to rejoice no matter what comes my way. Thank You for Your peace and strength to overcome in every area of my life in Jesus’ name! Amen.”|
