22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
“I choose joy. I will invite my God to be the God of circumstance. I will refuse the temptation to be cynical the tool of the lazy thinker. I will refuse to see people as anything less than human beings, created by God. I will refuse to see any problem as anything less than an opportunity to see God.” Max Lucado
Father it is in your joy that we will live today with a positive perspective as we encounter the realities of life. May your joy overflow through us so that we will be a source of blessing, hope and peace to others in whatever struggles they face.
Thank you Father for the reminder of Max Lucado that we can choose joy. May we ever remember: “…… the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 (ESV)
In the name of Jesus through whom the good news of great joy has come.
