It is not always easy to be joyful at ALL times. However, with the right perspective and a thankful heart we can try to change our attitude. Pain, loneliness, sorrow are all a part of life. We can become bitter and focus on the pain and suffering or we can look up and remember that life on earth is but for a second. Everything we experience and everyone we meet has a lesson and purpose to give and teach. I pray you CHOOSE to be joyful today inside your circumstance. God knows what you are feeling and wants to have a conversation with you. He will encourage and advise you. Never stop praying!!
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.” James 1:2-4 (NIV)
