Joy, Peace,

She chose joy as her armor, today
And wears her smiles in the tempest

Her mind agrees to become her comrade
Because she takes charge like an empress

Pain, fear, anxiety coalesced against her
But she silenced them like an enchantress

For her soul finds its safety on the joy of the Lord
And her courage is absolutely relentless

She vows to rejoice and proclaim it the Lord’s day
For the joy of Lord conquers emptiness

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Philippians 4:4

Choose joy today. Tell your mind that you’ll rejoice today no matter what happens. Joy will be your vaccine against angst, fear, doubt, and worry. Today matters and joy can help you be in the moment to see, hear, taste, and smell what the Lord has in store for you.

We already know that life doesn’t give us everything we ask for. Sometimes you can’t quickly fix the headaches and pains that life throws at you but you must learn to endure. Therefore, pray for the strength to endure while waiting and/or fighting for your breakthrough.

In the midst of it all; always choose joy, and let it teach you how to rejoice while you persevere. After all, you’re more than conquerors in Christ Jesus. Victory is yours in Christ Jesus and “Joy of the Lord Shall be the Armor of Your Mind”.

Thank you for reading. Happy Wellness Wednesday. Stay Blessed Always!
