as soon as my groggy eyes open in the morning, i start making choices.
– am i going to check my social media first or read my bible?
– do i have time for a shower today? (kidding, maybe 😉
– will i be productive?
– am i going to be patient with my kids today?
those are some of the many thoughts that crowd my mind first thing in the morning. the great thing about all of these options is that i have the choice to do something about it. i can choose to read my bible as soon as i wake up instead of gorging myself on instagram. i can choose to get so fresh ‘n’ so clean clean rather than be stinky. i can choose to do a lot of things.
in all of this, why not choose joy?
lots of things happen in life and you cannot control the circumstances around you. you can, however, choose how you respond. why not choose to be joyful no matter what?
this is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it [psalm 118:24].
today, i’m choosing joy. what about you? 🙂
