My sister, choose to be happy and full of joy!
“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him” Psalms 28:7, NIV.
why are you moping around
wearing a frown
looking like you drank pickle juice
why are you sad it’s Thursday
mad it’s a work day
got people wondering
what’s wrong with you
it’s time to change that attitude girl
time to stir up some joy
the Lord’s gonna brighten your countenance
and help you smile a whole lot more
My sister, I declare over you right now that you will remain full of the joy of the Lord no matter what challenges come your way. I declare you are going to stir up the joy of the Lord like never before and will choose to be happy. You will rest in knowing that you don’t have to have perfect circumstances to have joy. Joy flows like a river from your Father’s presence, and you walk in it no matter what you’re going through. You will say by faith, “HA! HA! HA! Jesus has conquered all of my enemies and have given me the victory!” Your Father in heaven is filling you with His joy right now and no one’s going to bring you down. What you’re facing is temporal, but your heavenly Father is eternal. You serve a good God, and He’s working everything out for your good. That alone will give you joy!”
Prayer: Father, you are the center of my joy and my life. You are the reason I smile and the reason I sing. As you fill me with your joy, I ask that you let it bless everyone around me. Use me to brighten someone’s day, not cast a gloomy cloud over them. Use me to refresh others, not bring them down. Use me to shine for you and give people hope, all for your glory. Put a song in my heart and a pep in my step. Help me laugh more. Brighten my face because you are good. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
“I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” John 15:11, NLT
