I’M HAPPY; I’M HAPPY; I’M…

Hey friends, how are doing? How are you today? How was your week? If you were Renee of Heart Tokens then I know a kitchen mishap was definitely part of your week.  As for me; I had a pretty good week. I stayed on top of most of my assigned tasks; as a matter of fact, I even ahead on a few.  I’m on a role.  I told you recently, I’m an all or nothing person, right? I jumped into this organization ring with both feet and this week was a rounding success 

“This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it”, Psalm 118:24. This is one of my favorite verses because it reminds me that each day is a gift from the Lord.  It also reminds me that I have a choice to make.  I have been commanded to rejoice and be glad in the day, but obedience is still my choosing.  I can choose to delight in the day and to be thankful, even on the days when my plans go awry. I really should not allow my actions to be controlled by my emotions. Nor should my emotions be controlled by my circumstances. My brain and my heart needs alignment.

I can choose to have a heart full of gratitude even on the day when the rains come with wind and thunder and lightning. I can choose to remember that each day is a blessing from the God of the Universe, filled with opportunities and to do things differently.  I can choose strength and beauty.  In order to do that, time spent with the Lord and in His Word is not optional.  Obedience in non-negotiable.  Now I can ‘rejoice and be glad’ because I know my foundation cannot be shaken, no matter the storms.  How is your day? Is your foundation secure?

Let’s continue the conversation over on Instagram. Follow my Instagram and I will follow back, just let me know in the comment section. I would love to meet you 🙂

  1. God is a commander. He operates basically on commandments which are non-negotiable and are attached with rewards. Our responsibilities obey His commandments and His rewards will follow (Deu.28). Great post, continue posting.

  2. Thank you my sister for sharing. Am truly blessed and grateful for another day. This truly is a brand new day the Lord has made and through Jesus we can rejoice and be glad no matter what comes our way. The troubles of this world don’t have to ruin our day, the Lord is in control and we can cast all our trouble and anxiety on him.

    A few days ago I was thinking, how can I rejoice and be glad when the day includes losing a loved one but the words “Under His Wings,” flowed through my being, in and out of consciousness, and I truly had a lasting sensation of how it feels to be under the Lord’s wings, a heavenly knowledge of His peace, covering and protection. It reminded me that no matter what comes our way God is still in control.

    Today gives me another chance to make better choices. No matter what comes my way I will do my best to rejoice and give thanks for another day. I can rejoice because Jesus is my firm foundation. Blessings to you always for sharing the word that ministers to the core of my being. 🤗🤗👏👏

  3. Well stated! Choosing to focus on Jesus is important and hard at times. But taking a few moments to pause and reflect. To remember Who made the day and Who is in control of the day is the perfect place to start.
