Choosing Joy
Radio Hostess: Lysa TerKeurst
Contributing Writer: Lysa TerKeurst

Let’s challenge ourselves today to make a choice…no matter what happens, let’s respond with joy. Hi I’m Lysa TerKeurst with Proverbs 31 Ministries. Even when others around us have a bad attitude, our kids start whining, someone cuts us off in traffic, or a friend misunderstands us, we can remember we have so much to be thankful for, so let’s choose joy. Sounds easy at first but beware, if we set about to choose joy today, we will be tested. But as we pass these tests with a response that honors God rather than reacting out of emotion, we’ll be blessed. We’ll see first hand your character and perseverance growing. Our outlook on life will change as we focus less on the bad and more on the good that is always there. So, today let’s choose joy.

For more encouragement and godly perspectives visit Proverbs 31 Ministries and be sure to sign up for our free daily devotion called “Encouragement for Today” at
