|How joyful are those who fear the LORD—
all who follow his ways!
You will enjoy the fruit of your labor.
How joyful and prosperous you will be!
Your wife will be like a fruitful grapevine,
flourishing within your home.
Your children will be like vigorous young olive trees
as they sit around your table.
That is the LORD’s blessing
for those who fear him.
I am Your creation, and You created me for a reason. Give me the wisdom to follow Your direction for my life’s journey. Let me do Your work here on earth by seeking Your will and living it, knowing that when I trust in You, Father, I am eternally blessed.
“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 New King James Version
“A cup of coffee shared with a friend is happiness tasted and time well spent.”
Make me mindful of my words. This world can be a difficult place, and many of Your children are discouraged and afraid. Make me a powerful source of encouragement to those in need, and let my words and deeds be worthy of Your Son, the One who gives me courage and strength, this day and for all eternity.
- “But encourage one another day after day, as long as it is still called “Today”, so that none of you will be hardened by the deceifulness of sin.”

You have given me so many reasons to celebrate. Today, let me choose an attitude of cheerfulness. Let me be a joyful Christian, Lord, quick to smile and slow to anger. And, let me share Your goodness with all whom I meet so that Your love might shine in me and through me.
“The cheerful heart has a continual feast.” Proverbs 15:15
