“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4 Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Are you living a life of worry and frustration or are you celebrating God’s blessings in spite of your circumstances? Christians have every reason to rejoice. Our eyes are focused on Jesus – the One who made salvation and eternal life possible for us. He is the source of our peace and hope!

Proverbs 4:5 instructs us to “Keep your eyes focused on what is right, and look straight ahead to what is good” (NCV). When the demands of life seem overwhelming, use God’s Word as a tool to adjust your attitude toward the situation. With Jesus Christ as your Savior, every day should be a time of celebration!

Pray: Lord Jesus, let Your Word speak to me and change my perspective so I can live my life with joy and enthusiasm. Create in me a postive, can-do attitude that is pleasing to You. In Jesus Name, Amen.
