God I Want Joy And Excitement

After a hard week many of us may have lost the joy and excitement we started the year with. Did you know that it is God’s will for you to be joyful always? He wants you to be happy and carefree. He wants you to love your life no matter what your circumstances look like. In fact, when you have joy in the midst of difficult circumstances, that is evidence that you have faith and trust that God will bring you through.

Remember, joy is strength. When you have His supernatural joy, you can stand strong no matter what’s going on around you. You might say, “I’m just not a real jovial person. I’m more serious. I never laugh much.” And of course, God made us all differently, but you can train yourself to laugh more. One article said that the average child laughs over 200 times a day, but the average adult only laughs 4 times a day. What’s happened? As we get older we’ve allowed the pressures of life, stress and more responsibilities, little by little, to steal our joy.

Today, make the decision to get your joy and excitement back! Decide that you are going to look beyond these serious problems, and look at what God will do on your behalf. Ask Him everyday to fill you with His supernatural peace and joy, so that you can live in His strength and victory every day of your life!

“Rejoice always, pray continually, in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

(1 Thessalonians 5:16—18, NIV)

Pray With Me
Yahweh, I humbly receive Your Word today. Father, I choose to open my heart to You and invite You to fill me with joy and excitement and strength and spiritual vigour. God, I want to spiritually be excited again, I rebuke the negative mundane daily news that stresses our lives, that rob me of my God-given joy. Fill me Your goodness, and empower me with Your grace. I bless You today and always, in Jesus’ Name! Amen.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?

I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive. Any
recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks

I have found through all the coronavirus chaos that I really haven’t had trust in the Lord, more so I trust peaceful circumstances and feeling in control. I think many Christians are in the same boat. They recognize that Christ came to die for sinners, but we aren’t really at peace with God’s provision in all areas of life…we trust our own ability to provide. When our ability to take care of our selves is removed we are faced with the reality that we don’t really trust God’s provision. It’s an opportunity for God to move in us and show His faithfulness.
