This month I joined a women’s Bible study group with the theme “Choose Joy.”
Couldn’t come at a better time.
I choose JOY when my back pain won’t go away.
I choose JOY when my heart aches for some family members going through difficult financial times and I can’t fix it.
I choose JOY when I’m overwhelmed with the convergience of many deadlines and I’ve overbooked my schedule.
I choose JOY when the government is at a stalemate on our budget.
I choose JOY over worry and fret and heart palpatations.
It is raining here in Phoenix where I’m traveling with my son Gabe.
How do I choose JOY?
It’s right here in the Book of the Bible we are studying for this Flourish in the Word study.
This is a favorite from Philippians 4:4-6
4 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! 5 Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
I pray you will choose joy today too, my friend.
Bless your day with JOY
