Choosing to be joyful

Choosing to be joyful

Share this Article

Annelies Marie Frank was a German-Dutch diarist of Jewish heritage who is famous for keeping a diary of her experiences while she and her family were hiding to avoid Nazi persecution. Although she did not survive the Holocaust, her diary did. Over 30 million copies of dairy (The Diary of a Young Girl) have been sold and translated into 70 different languages. Despite her predicament, Anne never lost her joy in life. One of the reasons for this was her ability to appreciate and enjoy the simple things in life. It’s difficult for us to be joyful if we don’t look at the positive side of life. This week refuse to worry about the problems or challenges around you instead decide to enjoy simple things in life such as hear the sounds of the birds and imitate them; watch the sunrise, laugh intentionally and look out for the rainbow. By doing that, we are choosing to be joyful. However, the most important reason for choosing to be joyful is because God loves us and it is His will or command for us to be joyful. When we make a conscious decision to do God’s commands – rejoice, keep on praying, give thanks and others in the Bible – we will find it easier to be joyful.

A joyful heart is good medicine. Scripture

  1. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
