If you haven’t been joyful lately, you may not be looking at life from the right perspective. This is so easy to forget, as I recently turned my eyes to look at my circumstance from an earthly perspective instead of reminding myself to rejoice in the Lord in my circumstances. Why was I so heavy and sad? I reminded myself to rejoice. Shortly, the heaviness lifted. My circumstance remained the same, but my perspective changed and that changed me.
Whatever discouraging circumstances weigh, how will you wear praise like a coat to change your posture of heaviness to a posture of praise?
