Choose Joy

June 26, 2020

This is the day that the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.

Psalm 118:24

After my mom’s cancer diagnosis I spent a lot of time taking her to doctor and chemo appointments. Every time we got in the car she would say, “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!” At that time I was juggling work and caring for aging parents and raising teenagers and to be honest, quite often I did not feel the same way she did.

Since my mom passed away I have found myself starting my day with this verse and it brings me much joy! I can choose to let the burdens of life drag me down or I can choose God’s love and daily blessings. Life is not easy but we all have a choice—choose JOY!!
