How to be joyful everyday?
Your experience yesterday varies from your situation today, so you can decide to be joyful regardless of your experience yesterday. You have no control of the events that will happen in the future but you can prepare yourself to handle them graciously and not draining yourself with disappointments.
To be joyful is a decision of the heart, here are straight forward ways to help you decide to stay joyful everyday.
Be patient to insensitive and irresponsible people.
Irresponsible people affected us always in time management. Even without this pandemic, some will come late in your appointment with or without a valid reason. Provide extra patience so you can accommodate them without being affected of their weakness in observing time.
Be kind to everyone even to the rude.
Showing kindness is manifesting God’s love inside your heart. Be kind to others the way God is being kind to you. Pay it forward.
Be generous especially to those who are in need.
Generosity is a matter of the heart. The amount is never important. It is the attitude of the heart that makes all the difference. Our God is full of grace and mercy so a Christian with the heart that is filled with grace and mercy of God, generosity is activated and it will just act naturally because it is connected with God.
Be gentle like the Holy Spirit.
I do not understand this until I begun to acknowledging the presence of the Holy Spirit in my life. If you allow the Holy Spirit moving in your situation. He will give you wisdom to solve your problem. He will give you discernment to communicate with the right words to say to anyone.
You will not easily judge people of their frailty but you will be gentle enough to help them.
Be a loving person even there is tension around you.
I think this is the most challenging way to be happy everyday because you do not have control of other people’s emotion. When you know that there are some people around you who are grumpy and unreasonable, stay calm and walk in love by giving them understanding and patience. Love conquers all, even the untamed heart will be melted with the love of God.
In conclusion, let us obey the commandment of God to love one another. This is the secret of a happy life.
