The Recipe for Joy (with Only Good Ingredients!)

Description

Choosing to think about the things that are going well rather than about the things that aren’t encourages us, lifts our souls, and helps us have a much better day! 

Do you ever look just at what’s not working? Your mind gets drawn by everything that’s not panning out in your life, affecting your emotions and feelings. Your thoughts then fill with stress and fear, which does you no good and steals your joy ... You can think about what’s making you suffer or about all the work you have to do, etc. And then you end up very discouraged!

But today, here's a key that helps protect your heart from worry and keeps you in joy. This key is summed up in this verse: “The Lord has done great things for us, And we are glad.” (Psalm 126:3)  

God has done great things for you, and that’s what you should choose to focus on. Look at everything that’s going right: You're alive and have a body that allows you to do so many things, like walk, jump, sit down, run ... You have the gift of being able to do good all around you, and that can fill my heart with good things…! 

You also have a mind that allows you to connect with God and draw all the love and strength you need from Him. 

You have a roof over your head, you have friends, you have the Word of God to encourage me. You have so many reasons to rejoice! 

Choosing to think about the things that are going well rather than about the things that aren’t encourages us, lifts our souls, and helps us have a much better day!
