Joy In The Morning

Joy In The Morning

Today is the first day of the rest of your life.  So how will you begin it?  With joy?

Life is not always easy, but with the Lord everything is a blessing.  Sometimes we think the Lord isn’t fair.  We struggle and grasp for answers to what are seemingly sad moments, disappointments, and heartaches.  But be sure, friend: Nothing takes the Lord by surprise.  Nothing is a mistake.  No one is without hope.

When everything seems to fall apart, take hold of our dear Father and know that He is patient, loving, and kind. He will never make an error.  Rejoice in the Lord’s loving direction and guidance.  Then, every day keep rejoicing in His marvelous love and faithfulness.

Begin the first day of the rest of your life with great joy.

“So be truly glad!  There is wonderful joy ahead, even though the going is rough down for a while down here.  These trials are only to test your faith, to see whether or not it is strong and pure.  It is being tested as fire tests gold and purifies it—and your faith is far more precious to God than mere gold; so if your faith remains strong after being tried in the test tube of fiery trials, it will bring you much praise and glory and honor on the day of His return.”

I Peter 1:6-7 TLB
