Unpopular opinion here. I’m full of ‘em though.
Y’all, we are gonna have to get rid of our 2020 defeatist attitudes – and I’m talking to myself, too.
This isn’t toxic positivity. This is reality. This is our reality – and it’s hard.
But we can do hard things.
We can do hard things because Christ did hard things, and He is living within us.
I guess what I’m trying to say is let’s make the best of a bad situation. You can be smack dab in the middle of the worst storm of your life and still have joy. This is illustrated all throughout the pages of the Bible – most beautifully modeled by Jesus himself.
Let’s be intentional about this.
Plan time to rest.
Plan time for recreation.
Plan time for therapy or venting to a friend.
But plan to have joy.
Pray for that joy.
Look up verses about joy in the Bible.
Meditate on those verses.
Today let’s plan to start a joy revelation.
Are you in?
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13
