I am getting ready to start my work day. So many times folks I work with, or deal with, daily seem to live to steal joy from others. Why they are bitter is not something I always (in fact rarely) know. Why they would rather try to take the joy from others instead of try to undermine others is usually a mystery. I guess some just love to hate. But, not gonna let those folks get me down. I am going to rejoice in the Lord and savor the day.
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4
Such a short, but wonderful verse and message.
Lord, Thank You for the day, I praise Your majesty, grace and mercy. I will rejoice in my Lord and Savior and keep the joy that You give me, regardless of what may come.
I ask you to help me not take the joy from others, but that I help them find their own.
