It’s a new day today. Be joyful! Today is another day given to us by God to go out and do something. What is that something? Only you can define it.
What will you do with today? Only you can determine that? How will that something get done? Will it be through joyful attempts, or will you do it begrudgingly? Only you can choose.
“Into all our lives, in many simple, familiar, homely ways, God infuses this element of joy from the surprises of life, which unexpectedly brighten our days, and fill our eyes with light.”
Romans 14:17, “For the kingdom of God does not consist of food and drink, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.”
It’s a new day and you can choose joy despite the circumstances.
Father, thank you for joy and for the pure joy of following you. Thank you that you are with us each day, even when things seem dark and difficult. Father, help us to choose joy over sorrow, happiness over sadness, light over darkness. Help us, Lord, to choose joy today as we begin each day. Lord, some days are more complicated than others, so please help us see that all things, even choosing joy, are possible through you. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
