What happens if after you Worship, Laugh more, Give to others and look around at your blessings you are still struggling to maintain or even find your Joy?
You turn to the one who created Joy and start your day with Jesus. Starting your day in prayer, thanksgiving and Worship to God will help you carry that focus throughout your day. For me to start my day with Joy I have to take time to be with Jesus, the source of my happiness. I am by no means saying that this is easy but with a little determination and prayer it can be done.
Verse: Lamentations 3:21-24 ~ This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
Action: Set your alarm in the morning for 15-30 minutes early than your usual time. Have your coffee pot ready to go and sit down with Jesus and talk to him.
Journal: Write in your journal any scriptures that you read that speak to your heart. It is such a blessing to be able to look back and see what the Lord has shown you and how much we have grown in our relationship with him.
What is the best time of day for you to spend with the Lord?
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
me: Neither! HA!
