This week at a Bible study I’ve been in with a faithful group of women, we were challenged to write a personal declaration for our lives. I changed the tone from “I will” to “I am” because I need to speak this over myself right here, right now, in the season I am in. Maybe you need this too. (The scriptures are at the end today.)

“No matter the swirl of crazy whirling around me, I choose joy. I seek and find the good gifts of God in every situation. I consider it joy to walk through the valley of the shadow of death knowing that the path of righteousness winds right through it. I keep my eyes fixed on Jesus who gives and perfects my faith as he answers me in all inspiring works and gives me hope and purpose that reaches the ends of the earth.”

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds,” James‬ ‭1:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“He refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.” Psalms‬ ‭23:3-4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭12:2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

“You answer us with awesome and righteous deeds, God our Savior, the hope of all the ends of the earth and of the farthest seas,”

‭‭Psalms‬ ‭65:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬🚦
