No matter what has happened to you in the past or what is going on in your life right now, it has no power to keep you from having an amazingly good future if you will walk by faith in God. God loves you! He wants you to live with victory over sin so you can possess His promises for your life today!

Joyce Meyer

My new philosophy:

No matter what I want in life or what is going on in my life, I choose joy. When I create joy, everything seems easy.  Joy allows me to work on things I love or at least in a loving matter.  

Emotions are a choice.  If we choose negative emotions, we get negative results.  Negative results create more negative reactions.

Challenge: Choose joy and all the other positive emotions.  Do this for three months and share with me what happens.  Don’t get frustrated if you automatically start feeling negative emotions.  Understand these negative emotions are ingrained.  It is all about figuring out why you are feeling the emotion. 

Maybe you are thinking negative thoughts or interpreting other people’s words or actions as negative.  Even if they do things that are hurtful, change all your thoughts about them as positive instead of negative.

For example, I had a problem with negative emotions yesterday.  I realized I was interpreting someone else’s actions and words as negative.  I made a choice to lose my joy.  It was not a moment that I was proud of and left me feeling very sad.

This is what I did after awhile of feeling joyless:  I said, “Okay, they may think or feel that way but I know the truth.  They may not give me the credit I need but I know what I do.  I am choosing to live a joyful life.” 

I also decided that I was having these emotions because I was extremely tired.  I chose to sleep in so that I could get the rest I needed.  Taking care of yourself and making these choices will help you live the life of your dreams.
