I create my own joy.
My life is filled with joy! Precious relationships touch my heart, nature offers abundant blessings, and opportunities to share my joy abound. Joyfulness is a choice. I know my thoughts can affect my feelings. If I feel resentful, angry, or fearful, I take a moment to look at why I’m feeling this way. This is my point of choice. I can consider various ways to see a situation or person. In so doing, I may be able to change my feelings from down and destructive to joyful and constructive. I look for and find reasons to be joyful. As I choose happiness, others feel it too. Light-heartedness is contagious. I happily share joy—the loving activity of God in me.
Everlasting joy shall be upon their heads; they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.—Isaiah 35:10
