Be Glad

Be glad then, you children of Zion, and rejoice in the Lord, your God; for He gives you the former or early rain in just measure and in righteousness, and He causes to come down for you the rain, the former rain  and the latter rain, as before. And the [threshing] floors shall be full of grain and the vats shall overflow with juice [of the grape] and oil.
                                                                                                                     Joel 2:23-24

So many times our outward appearance shows the way we’re feeling inside. But it can also work the other way! When we look confident on the outside, we can feel more confident on the inside. When you walk, stand upright. Don’t slump your shoulders and hang your head down. You are full of life of God, so act like it!
Live with passion, zeal and enthusiasm. Don’t just try to “make it” through the day. Celebrate the day. Say, “This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it” (see Psalm 118:24). Don’t dread the day; attack the day. Know what you want to accomplish today and go for it.
You go, girl- you start talking and walking with confidence! It is time for you to look up, not down. It is time for you to expect great things to happen in your life.

Lord, I want to live this day passionately and to celebrate Your life in me. This is the day You have made, and I want to bring You glory in it. Amen.
