I find this a helpful way to check myself when I’m tempted to give in. I just say to myself,
“NO. Not today. This is my day to keep that joy, to hold on to the love of Jesus. Today, nothing is going to take that away. I know this situation stinks, but I AM going to fight for my joy. This is MY time; God made me for this situation. I can do this.”So when you are frustrated, tired, disappointed, struggling—rebel against the world and against the devil.
Fight for your joy.
