Third, learn to forgive quickly for your own sake. And when you sin, be quick to repent and don’t waste time feeling guilty about something God has forgiven and forgotten. 

Fourth, be positive in your thoughts, words, and attitudes—and your joy will overflow.

Finally, live one day at a time. God gives us grace for each day, but not until that day comes, so go ahead and enjoy today fully.

Prayer of the Day: Father, I’m sorry for the joyless days I have spent because of wrong thoughts and attitudes. Forgive me and teach me how to experience full joy in You. Thank You. In Jesus’ name, amen.
