John 8:32 (ESV)
And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
Do you feel like you spend a lot of time dwelling on the negatives? Oftentimes, we let our circumstances overwhelm us. We focus on the moment and forget that there is something bigger and better ahead of us.
Make the Choice to Rejoice.
You always have a choice: Focus on yesterday’s pain or today’s joy. Yes there will be hard times but God will bring you through and the lessons you learn will carry you far. Life can be difficult. You can choose joy by seeking out God’s Word! God’s Word is an anchor for your soul. If you just open your ears to God’s voice, He will shatter those chains of negativity and speak His truth into your heart.
God loves you; He has wonderful things in store for you! Repeat the words in Psalm 139: “I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.”
Dear Lord, help us to focus on the joy You bring and not the pains we have felt. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
