TOPIC: Don’t Give Up

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones. – Proverbs 17:22, ESV

TODAY’S WORD
Throughout life, there will always be something that will try to take our joy. If it’s not a grumpy sales person, it’s a family member aggravating you, traffic is backed up, your flight got delayed, or your spouse is taking too long! Don’t go the next twenty years allowing the same people and same circumstances to frustrate you. Change your approach. What’s upsetting you now doesn’t have to upset you anymore.

Joel Osteen Devotional 8 November 2019 – Don’t Give Up

You can choose to keep your cool and stay calm and steady. Remember, a relaxed attitude is going to lengthen your life. The next time you’re tempted to be upset, ask yourself, “Is this really worth me giving up my joy?” If you’ll make the decision to not give away your joy but live each day happy, God promises you’ll be strong, you’ll have better relationships, and you’ll accomplish more. He says a joyful heart is good medicine! Hold on to your joy and move forward into the abundant life God has in store!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, today I will hold on to joy! I choose to live each day with peace and happiness. I choose to rely on Your strength and Your Word which guides my every step. I love You and thank You for loving and directing me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
