Happiness flees…JOY is a choice

Father God, help me this day to live joyously, knowing it is not a circumstance, but a choice. Since I inhabit a sinful, broken world, help me choose joy regardless of what may come and do it many times today. Make this especially true to me during difficult times. This I pray in the matchless and eternal name of Jesus, my source of JOY. Amen

Verse for Today: “Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2)
