This Challenge, I Choose Joy, is about being ‘choiceful.’ God has given us the freedom to choose. You will be equipped and empowered with the Word of God coaching resources for your personal development and spiritual growth over the fears of pandemic, pandemonium, panic, and paradigm shifts, misery, and mess in this world.
This day, I choose joy. I choose fearless faith. I choose hope. I choose love. I choose to live a life that honors God. I choose to live in abundance, happiness, success, wellness, effectiveness, excellence, affluence, and influence.
“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.”
― Thich Nhat Hanh.
John 10:10 says,
“I Choose Joy” is a declaration, an affirmation, an auto-suggestion, a resistance as a deliberate focus to guard your mind, emotions, attitude, and behavior against negativity and the happenings around you that are trying to kill, steal and destroy you. You choose joy by establishing boundaries, practicing positivity, and speaking Life, despite it all!
Cultivate and nurture an inner sense of well-being, peace, satisfaction, security, fulfillment, completeness, contentment, and joy.
“Find joy in everything you choose to do. Every job, relationship, home… it’s your responsibility to love it, or change it.”
“I Choose Joy” is not the superficial happiness the world portrays hidden behind the perfect filtered selfies, pretentious ‘happy and wealthy’ Instagram-envy Life; there are turmoil, darkness, and hopelessness. Instead, you choose to pursue the joy of the Lord that equips, empowers, enables, evolves, and elevates you.
“If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.”
Eliminate darkness with His Light! Eradicate depression with His Love! Emancipate yourself from mental slavery with His gift for your eternal Life!
“We have to embrace obstacles to reach the next stage of joy.”
“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.” ― Rumi.
Wouldn’t you like to experience this feeling of joy, despite everything happening in a world filled with a pandemic, pandemonium, panic, pain, politics, and paradigm shifts, plus your “own personal misery and mess,” yet you are peaceful and joyful? Your mind is at peace and rest, fearless faith in God, and full of joy. How do we cultivate more joy in our Life? Like anything else, it takes practice to choose joy and make happiness a habit. You prefer the pleasure of the Lord as the source of your inner strength and peace. Often, this requires you to renew your mindset, reset your baseline and routine. It won’t happen overnight as it takes intentional practice, a structured approach, and determination!
“Let your joy be in your journey—not in some distant goal.”

― Abraham Hicks
