This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
“Happiness is a choice.” This was a title of a book that helped change my life. For me, the “aha” came when I realized that my worry, fear, and sadness was a habit. I knew that a habit could be broken, and a new habit could take its place. So, it was very exciting to consider that the habit of happiness could replace all the other negative thinking habits I had been practicing. To help me start the day with the habit of “happiness,” I would get up and quote today’s verse out loud: “This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” That simple habit allowed me to focus and begin a string of thoughts that would lead to a more joyful outlook on life. It helped me energize faith before negative and pessimistic thinking could take root in my morning. How about you? Is happiness the choice that you have made today? If not, it is not too late. Happiness, joy, peace, and faith can be yours today. God has provided it, you need to choose it. This is the day the LORD has made; go ahead, rejoice and be glad in it.
Father, today I choose happiness, joy, peace, and faith. Thank You that this is a day that You have made; please help me to rejoice today and be glad in it. In Jesus’ name.
