Today You Can Rejoice

“This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalm 118:24

“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 happiness could be a habit, too. 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 would allow me to focus and begin a string of thoughts that would lead to a more joyful outlook on life. It would allow me to 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 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. AMEN
