Jesus came to give us a life more abundant, not one where we daily struggle to barely survive because we’re so stressed out.
If you have been living on the verge of a total meltdown or just barely surviving the daily grind, dragging through your days weary and broken inside- ask yourself “why?” Are you choosing to allow your circumstances to enslave your heart and mind?
Joy really is a choice.
Choosing to live joyfully requires changing how we think about what’s going on around us instead of being tossed about by a sea of emotional reactions. As the annoying, yet oddly wise, Disney song says “let it go, let it goooooooo oh….!”
Today, I’m choosing joy…in spite of it all! I’m choosing to slow down and live more intentionally. I’m choosing to not let worry squash my mind in its crushing vise. I’m choosing to “let go” of the negatives and grab hold of the overflowing mercies of God!
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. (John 10:10)
