Give Me Joy Day 26: You Know that Thing you have be striving for? How is it going?

 

 

WHAT DO YOU SEE?

 

A change in mindset -either how people view us or how we view

ourselves -is a process. It takes a ton of energy and support and

repetition to truly cause a significant shift in perspective.

 

I know it is not easy. I know many times the work you are doing to

create change will seem too difficult. But keep going and be gentle

about the time line. Many times deep inner work takes a while to

bloom on the surface. But the results are long lasting and the depth

of wisdom you will bring to new challenges in your life is priceless.

Read the healing story in Mark 8 and write about the process of

feeling more joy in your life.

Give Me Joy Day 25: You Know Sometimes I Just Need a Little Light to Help Me Shine

 

 Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.

-

Psalm 126:5

 Lord,

sometimes discouragement comes out of nowhere

and overwhelms my sense of hope in what you are doing in my life.

 

 

I come to you Lord when I am weary

and

your Spirit

holds me close

your words whispers reminders in my ears

your people offer the hugs I need

to bring me back

to where I need to be.

 

 

Help me to never forget

the way you have provided for these times in my life

as if to say

there is no avoiding

this type of discouragement.

 

 

You show yourself mighty

 

 


 

even in this:

that you provide a way of escape

out of the discouragement

so that I can stand up under it.

 

 

Glory and honor and praise to you God,

my provider of all of my needs

physical

emotional

spiritual

 

 


 

Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but when dreams come true,

there is life and joy."

-Proverbs 13:12

 

 

It seems to me that hope and dreams are intertwined. In the most

adverse circumstances that I have faced, I find that if I am able to hold

onto a little goal, a little dream, something that is placed just a bit

outside of the realm of the situation...

 

 

I can find a way to will myself forward.

Take one more step.

Not lose hope.

 

 

Today reflect on some of those times in your life where

You had no answers

You did not know which way to turn

You had no choice but to endure…

Yet somehow…

You found a little hope.

 

 


 

Joy in Action Moment:

 

 

What activity did you use to help you stand up under the weight of

the circumstance that was before you?

What was the thing you focused on?

What helped you to endure?

Give Me Joy Day 24: Who do you allow to Influence you?

 

The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.

-

Psalm 126:3

 

God surround me with people

who live in state of joy and gratitude

for the lives you have given them.

 

 

I know that I will dwell in places that those people around me dwell…

 

 

whether it be

joy and gratitude

or

bitterness and unforgiveness.

 

 

Help me to lovingly release people who

Choose

to live

in an unforgiving state of mind.

 

 

Help me to

look for

and

cultivate relationships with people

who are joy seekers.

 

 


 

I want a life that in drenched in the joy of your presence.

 

 

I know that in Your presence

I am promised

Fullness

of

joy

 

 

Joy is a state of mind.

 

The mind holds this tremendous power to navigate the way you

experience your daily life.

Your life is controlled by the thoughts you think.

I do not believe that we can merely wish things into existence.

I do believe that the things that we dwell on can either open or close

 

 

our minds and our hearts to further opportunities for more success in

 

 

our lives.

I also believe that what others impose upon us can hold a similar

consequence.

 

 


 

Joy in Action Moment:

 

Imagine walking into a situation where you are made to feel inferior. It

could a classroom or the workplace or even in your own family. You

know without a doubt that what the circumstance is feeding to your

brain is not true.

 

And one day you are finally out of that environment.

 

AND you actually move into a situation with people who recognize

your value.

 

How do you respond? Does your mind start to second guess the

correct assessment of your value? Why? How do you make the

decision to believe the truth?

Give Me Joy Day 23: What do you believe about your future?


Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love that we may sing for joy

and be glad all our days.

Psalm 90:14

 

God I have finally let go of the belief that the future you have in mind

for me is NOT good.

I believe it will be

Abundant.

Satisfying.

Fulfilling.

More than I can even ask

Or

think.

 

 

I pray in this particular area

 

 

that you will delight me with your purpose.

 

 

Begin to give a sense of what you are doing

so that my heart will be filled

with hopeful expectancy.

 

 

You never fail me Lord.

 

 


 

I thank you that you bring me a deeper understanding of that reality

every day.

 


 

How often have you spent time assessing how your life looks like

NOW

your future.

There needs to be some clear cut agenda for allowing more joy in

your life.

 

What activities do you need to incorporate more of in your life?

 

What experiences have you had that are causing you anger/misery

which you need to make peace with and let go of?

 

What relationships do you need to eliminate all together or to

enhance/deepen?
