Joy is a choice. It’s choosing to see the goodness of God in the midst of our circumstances. Choosing joy is seeing God’s plan beyond the temporary. Things may be falling apart now, but the momentary struggles of life are achieving building inner strength, close connections, grace, peace, and trust in God. But during all of this the pain will be real and depending on the circumstances, overpowering.
Looking back, we will see God using those trials as a process for change. Let us choose joy and looking back, we know that our faith has been made stronger because of it. During those hard times take solace in: Our God is greater, Our God is stronger, God, You are higher than any other!
We must choose joy.
Looking back at the hard times, how has God used them for good in your life now?
How can you intentionally choose joy today?
