When times are tough, it is easier to dwell on the negative. God commands us to rejoice. While we don’t want to pretend nothing is wrong, we should easily be able to find a way to rejoice. A friend of mine took this picture of a sunflower field. I can easily smile when looking at something so bright and cheerful. God made sunflowers happy.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for providing ways to rejoice. Thank You for beautiful flowers to brighten my day. Thank You for friends who send me pictures to brighten my day. Thank You for the many blessings You send my way. I praise Your name and rejoice in who You are.
I pray this in Jesus’ name.
God is so good.
