Have you had your JOY JUICE today? It’s your choice! Will you drink it or do you choose NOT to?
So often we like to blame others for our bad choices. “They MADE me do it!” we say. “I really didn’t have a choice.” We can play the blame game all we want to, but the reality is that we are responsible for our own choices in most cases.
One important choice that we make daily is the kind of attitude we display. If we want today to be a JOYful one, then we should take charge of the way we approach it and focus on the promise of God that HE IS NEAR! I’m afraid some days we determine to enjoy our misery instead of looking past it!
Yes, I understand that there are some things we have no control over…But we can do something about our attitude! John Maxwell…in his book Make Today Count tells us that we should think, act, talk and conduct ourselves like the persona we want to become…hopefully, a shining example of God’s love! When God places a goal or vision in your heart, approach each day with a joyful, positive attitude and BELIEVE that with God’s help, you can accomplish that goal!
Maxwell reminds us that our interaction with others sets the tone of our day. He calls it the “music of your life”. Stop just a minute and listen to the song you’re singing. It is a song of JOY?
Sing with me the verse in Psalm 118:24: “This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!”
