Of Sheep and Joyness

My boy spoke a new word, one that I grabbed and tucked into my own vocabulary. Joyness. A word to describe the type of day I choose. An emotion I choose to splash in each day.

First things first, setting the joyness for our day. As momma, my mood casts a shadow or rays of sunshine on the day ahead as sleepy boys tumble out of bed.

Flipping the pages of my battle plan, the victory for my day wrapped in God's Word of love and hope, I turn to well worn Psalm 100 and declare it in faith over our day ...

"Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his, we are his people, the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations." - Psalm 100

A simple act. It sets my emotions on joyness. It sets my day on the right path. And sometimes, you can even hear some baaaaaa coming from our house throughout the day.

Hi Sara - I did this yesterday, made a conscious effort to not live by my emotions for that day - made the world of difference. Today, I too will set my emotions to joyness.
Have a blessed day

Such a great Psalm! My day goes so much better when I take a few moments first thing to talk to the Lord. If I can squeeze in a prayer walk I feel even more energized and thankful. There's nothing as comforting as talking to the God of the universe ;D
