This morning I woke up still quite weary with all sorts of negative thoughts trying to invade my peace. I’m not sure if there was one singular thing that signified my turning point. Rather I believe that a series of seemingly random yet very well, divinely orchestrated thoughts brought me to my place of peace. There was a phonecall, there was a word of encouragement, there was the beautiful sun smiling on my morning, there was a lot. Of this one thing I am more than sure … At some point very early in the day I decided that I was going to believe that God loved me more than anything in the world. I was going to believe that above all else, I am a priority to Him. Believe that He does know the count of every last hair on my head and believe that my success and perfection in His Glory is priority numero uno to Him. But here’s the thing, I HAD TO DECIDE.
Tonight I’m not going to write much. My point is brief, concise and succinct:
- No matter how much you want to blame the world, you still hold controlling shares to how your day turns out based on how you react
- In this day and age of technology, a lot can be done for you but only you can cause joy to course through your veins and a smile to appear on your face
- I am assured of the promise in His word that weeping may endure for a moment, but Joy comes in the morning
- All the promises in the world mean anothing unless I first believe in the promise maker and the promise keeper
Today I smile for more reasons than one, but the reason I will keep smiling tomorrow is because I am fearfully and wonderfully made, and God has set up a surprise for me today, tomorrow, the day after and forever. All I have to do is to decide to believe Him. Today, I sing because my joy is in Him and He is my joy!
