Suddenly, Danny, standing in the doorway, interrupted my thoughts. "Uh, honey," he said. "You are right; you are completely right. Thank you for reminding me that God is in control. I will put my faith into action and I will be careful what I let come out of my mouth."
The next day my mouth was still agape when my husband told me that he'd gone out and bought a book titled 30 Days to Taming Your Tongue (Deborah Smith Pegues, Harvest House). Here I was, proudly displaying my faith for healing, when all the while, I was seriously lacking faith in God's ability to change my husband. Sometimes we can have strong faith in one area and weak faith in others, especially when it comes to our relationships. Some days we may wake up feeling great, and joy is automatic. Other days we may struggle and wonder where our joy has gone.
It hasn't gone anywhere. Joy is always available. It's in you, just waiting to be stirred up.
What are you waiting for? Don't waste any more time being gloomy. Activate the force that is waiting on you to set you free from depression, heaviness and worry. Activate the force of joy!
