Choosing life, joy and thankfulness!

My heart feels alive today! Realizing it is something I have to choose each day and life abundantly, I have to choose joy, and I have to choose thankfulness. This isn't always easy for me, I have always struggled with being negative and kind a down, still asking the Lord where this all stems from. I've received a lot of break through in this area in the last months with praying and asking the Lord to help me in this area and having my husband and others stand in agreement with me in prayer and calling me on it when I start speaking negative etc. So I've been trying to not focus on everything that sucks or that is hard in my life but focus on all the blessing the Lord has given me in the natural and spiritual, when I want to say how hard something is instead finding something good about that situation.

Here's some verses to ponder...
Psalm 100:4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, And into His courts with praise. Be thankful to Him, and bless His name
Psalm 16:11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

I pray the Lord will encounter you all with his love and joy today! Be blessed today!
