Choosing to focus on the joy of the Lord can be a powerful way to help us cope with and overcome problems. We often get so wrapped up in our worries and struggles that we forget to take a step back and see that there is so much to be thankful for. When we shift our focus to the Lord and find joy in His presence, we can gain strength and peace to face our problems. Joy does not just simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep choosing it every day.
One way to choose joy is to spend time in prayer and Scripture. Taking time each day to focus on God’s promises and power can help us to remember that, no matter what we face, He is always with us. We can find hope and joy in the fact that, no matter the difficulty, He will never leave us nor forsake us.
Another way to choose joy is to look for ways to serve others. When we take our eyes off our problems and focus on the needs of others, we can find joy in being able to help and give to those who need it. We can also find joy in the moments of beauty, laughter, and love that we share with our family and friends.
Finally, we can choose joy by celebrating our victories, no matter how small. No matter what comes our way, we can find joy in the fact that we have overcome and persevered, and continue to do so.
Choosing to focus on the joy of the Lord can bring us peace, hope, and strength to face our problems. By taking time to connect with God, serve others, and celebrate our victories, we can remember that He is always with us and that He will never leave us nor forsake us.
Therefore, choose joy today and every day, because the Joy of the Lord is our strength. Nehemiah 8:10
