I have discovered that there’s nothing like a good Bible verse to lift my spirits when I’m feeling down. When I’m struggling to find joy, God’s Word always picks me up. I ran across this verse today and I wanted to share it with you. It would be a good message to print out and tape to your bathroom mirror so that you see it first thing in the morning:
“Do not be saddened this day, for rejoicing in the LORD is your strength!” (Nehemiah 8:10)
Abba Father, Thank you for loving me into existence. No matter what happens today, I know that you love me and are with me. I may not be able to handle the many problems in my life, but I know that you can. Because of that, I choose to rejoice. With you, all things are possible. Please continue to lead me and help me to remember that you are always in control. I pray this in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
