REJOICE BY CHOICE

WHATEVER TODAY IS ON THE CALENDAR, IS NOT NEARLY AS IMPORTANT AS WHAT THE SCRIPTURES SAY ABOUT TODAY. EACH DAY IS A GIFT FROM GOD. IT IS THE DAY THAT HE HAS MADE. BECAUSE HE HAS MADE IT AND GIVEN IT TO US AS A GIFT, THE SCRIPTURES ALSO TELL US WHAT OUR DAILY RESPONSE SHOULD BE. "THIS IS THE DAY THE LORD HAS MADE, WE WILL REJOICE AND BE GLAD IN IT". PS. 118:24
REJOICE IS NOT AN ACTION AS MUCH AS IT IS AN ATTITUDE OF THE HEART. THERE'S NOT ALWAYS GOING TO BE A VISIBLE, TANGIBLE REASON IN THE NATURAL TO REJOICE, BUT WE CAN STILL CHOOSE TO REJOICE ANYWAY. SOMETIMES WE HAVE TO "REJOICE BY CHOICE". ALL WE HAVE TO DO IS BEGIN TO FOCUS ON JESUS. LIKE THE WORDS TO THE OLD WORSHIP CHORUS WE USED TO SING, "TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS, LOOK FULL IN HIS WONDERFUL FACE, AND THE THINGS OF EARTH WILL GROW STRANGELY DIM, IN THE LIGHT OF
HIS GLORY AND GRACE."

GOD BLESS YOU, AND HAVE A WONDERFUL TODAY!
