Each day we are blessed with a NEW set of 1440 minutes. What a gift. If we made poor choices in attitude, behavior or conversation yesterday, we get a chance to begin again, and with God’s grace and strength we can make better, positive choices.
Today, let’s choose Joy!
Life is never going to be perfect. As long as there is breathe in us we will always have things we are working through and working towards. That is life. But every day is a new beginning…A fresh start, a new day to live, love, learn, grow and change. We can wake up and say “This is a new day that God has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Joy is not depended on our circumstances.
Choosing joy is a spiritual practice.
Assuming you believe in a higher power, it is a quiet and assured confidence in:
- The fact that God is in control of each and every aspect of our life.
- The fact that God loves us and always wants the best for us, and everything will be okay no matter what things look like right now.
- The fact that God is with us each day, and will never leave us, so there is nothing to worry about or to fear.
When we choose joy, we are choosing health, strength and energy for our body. Calm focus for our mind. Happy endorphins are released, stress, pressure and tension is released. And best of all, we feel God’s presence and peace.
So, remember, we have only one day at a time to live, so let’s live this day consciously and deliberately and let’s choose well!
