Being Glad

How have you been feeling lately? Have you been rejoicing or sad. Is life becoming difficult and in turn it’s hard to focus on your relationship with the Lord?

< Psalms 9:2 I will be glad and rejoice in you

Life can be difficult at times and we have to just make a decision to be glad and rejoice in the Lord. “I will” is what our passage says. We can choose to focus on a difficult situation and get bummed out and upset or we can trust the Lord, be glad and rejoice. One thing that I have noticed about people that really love Jesus, even though at times life serves them lemons, true followers of the Lord will make some lemonade. Our attitude may for a little while be bitter and ugly; but after a little time we choose to get our eyes back on Jesus and make a conscious decision to rejoice and trust that somehow God is working all things out for the good, for those who love him.

Do you love him?

: Lord forgive me for my lack of faith in you. Today “I will” trust you and know that you can handle all of the difficulties in my life. God please help someone else who is having a tough time keeping their eyes on you. Help them to be glad in you.
