Interestingly enough, finding joy was Jesus Always entry for 2/17----the day I began choosing "my one word." No wonder my first thought was that "joy" would be my word. Sarah Young's latest devotional book, Jesus Always is all about embracing joy!
Young reminds readers that "joy can be found in the most unexpected places."
One just needs to search for the "good" in life---to "see" joy. As she puts it, "Living joyously is a choice...and gladness must be chosen many times daily." (2/17)
Choose is my word because I want to keep on choosing "right living" as Proverbs shows.
Choosing is about seeing God's hand in our lives and trusting the outcome regardless of our trials and most difficult times.
Seeing His goodness requires focus. Focus requires "fixing one's eyes on Jesus." (Hebrews 12:2) Seeing Him. Regardless.
It's a choice!
