Therefore my heart is glad and my glory [my inner self] rejoices; my body too shall rest and confidently dwell in safety.
— Psalm 16:9 (AMPC)
Adapted from the resource The Power of Being Thankful – by Joyce Meyer
There are dozens of things that happen during ordinary, everyday life, and we can enjoy them all if we just make a decision to do it.
Things like getting dressed, driving to work, going to the grocery store, running errands, keeping things organized, sending e-mails, taking the kids to practice, and hundreds of other things.
After all, they are the things that life is made up of. Begin doing them with an attitude of gratitude and realize that, through the Holy Spirit, you can enjoy absolutely everything you do every day of your life.
Joy doesn’t come merely from being entertained, but from a decision to appreciate each moment that you are given as a rare and precious gift from God.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for the gift of life, and thank You for every activity that comes with that gift. I pray that You will help me find joy in each part of my day as I live for You. I thank You that I can choose to enjoy even the average, routine parts of my day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
