This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

Rejoicing is a choice. It’s easy enough to be joyful when things are going well. But what about when things are tough? We can choose to be joyful then too.

I can praise the Lord despite my circumstances or I can wallow in self-pity and sit here whining. Today I choose to rejoice.

Instead of complaining about my budget, I can choose to rejoice that bills are paid and that I have money for groceries. Instead of whining because my kids make huge messes, I can rejoice that I have those precious children. Instead of complaining that my husband has to leave for work earlier than I’d like, I can rejoice that he has a good job. Instead of whining about a lack of free time, I can rejoice that I have the freedom to homeschool my children.

God made today, and I will be glad! I will rejoice.

Spread the love
