Wow! It doesn’t seem possible that today is my last post my weekly joy lessons for 2017. This year – it flew by so quickly.
Throughout the whole year, I’ve had this quote posted on my fridge:
I love this verse for so very many reasons, but one that I focused on a lot during the past twelve months, is this: fear not. When I let go of my fears, I find my joy.
Which brings me to another favorite “joy” quote:
Each and every day, I can choose joy. When I do, it keeps me from falling into the mire of doubt, worry, anxiety, fear, frustration, anger, etc. Do I always choose joy? Sadly, no. But I’m a work in progress with plenty of room for improvement. But I did discover myself seeking to choose joy more frequently as the year progressed with these joy lessons.
Joy is such an incredible thing. And the best part is that we can choose it at any moment. Even if our day has gotten off to a bad start, even when things aren’t going our way – we can still choose joy. And the more we choose it, the deeper and richer that well of joy that resides in our hearts.
My wish for you all in 2018 is that you will joy will fill your hearts and lives to overflowing.
