There are some things you hear or read that really stick with you. While going through training at work we were assigned Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. There were many principles that I’ve taken away from that book. One of them was the idea that we never “have” to do anything. We’re always choosing the consequences of our decisions.
Today, I’m choosing joy over despair. I have joy because I am forgiven by God and have Him living in me. With Him all things are possible. His light overpowers all of my darkness. But, I have to choose Him and so do you.
God is good. God loves you. God is for you. Thank Him and praise Him today for who He is.
Philippians 4:4 Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice!
