I declare that this coming week is going to be great—the same affirmation I made last week. I will not be weary or frustrated or worried or depressed or anxious. I will not faint and give in to negative thoughts. I will not! There are lots of issues in my family right now and it would be super easy to give up or think that God has forgotten us. But let us all take a lesson from Jim. A while back he received some knock the breath out of you health news. His faith never once waivered. He declared, “It’s going to be fine.” He is optimistic and feels better than ever. Other people would have gone to bed and given up.
Our scripture says in due season, we shall reap IF WE DON’T GIVE UP. Friends, we all have things we’re hoping for. We all have areas of our lives we want to see changed. Some say, “I’ll just learn to live with it.” While it’s good to be content, take a step further. Stir up your faith. Declare it’s your season. Keep your joy while you’re waiting. Don’t allow satan to steal one single day with his lies. This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it” (Psalm 118:24).
Joy is a choice; keep your faith strong,
