Today Pastor Davis reminded us of the conscientious decision we make each day as believers about our lifestyle and witness. There is a fundamental difference between joy and happiness. Happiness is based on emotions and current circumstances, while joy is based upon your foundation and connection. Joy lasts beyond circumstances and situations.
How do you choose a life of joy?
1. Be intentional about the start of your day
Spend time in prayer, meditation and affirmation
2. Be present in the moment
Do not give in to the urge to rush through the holidays and special moments. Each person is significant and deserves your undivided attention. Each situation is unique, and should be treated as such.
3. Be grateful
God has blessed you beyond measure. Instead of focusing on negatives, pause to praise God for every positive moment in your life. There is a plan for your present and future. Look forward with great expectation.
