I don't usually make New Year's Resolutions because they don't often last through the first month. I didn't intend to this year, but today I've decided to change my life. I choose to see joy in some part of every day. I expect there will be days when that joy is elusive. The daily news is depressing. People sometimes disappoint me. I often disappoint myself. I choose not to dwell there.
The Apostle Paul wrote to the church in what we call the book of Philippians, "I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content." Philippians 4:11 ESV Read the New Testament. Paul was often in life-threatening situations.
I refuse to end a day in sorrow, depression, anger, or feeling sorry for myself. I choose to be content with whatever God gives me and before I go to bed each night I will find the joy in that day and to thank Him for it.
Let's not waste any of the next 365 days. Who will join me in this resolution?
Pictures and joy will be recorded on my Facebook Author page.
The mundane becomes inspiration.
