Feeling joy in ordinary things isn’t as hard as it seems. To find joy in your life focus on the good and be grateful for what you have. It’s not happy people who are thankful, it’s thankful people who are happy. Give thanks to the Lord for in his presence is fullness of joy.
All the days of the oppressed are wretched, but the cheerful heart has a continual feast.
You can choose to be worried and troubled or you can choose to trust God and be happy. The way to a happy heart begins in giving thanks to God in every situation. You can always find something to be thankful for even if you have to look a little harder. Be grateful for the little things that God can use to fill your heart with joy.
