His Joy = Our Strength. The Choice is yours!

Found this over on my friend's Rebekah's site today.  It blessed me so I thought I'd repost.  No matter what, let's choose joy!!!

JOY by Maiden Princess

Joy is not a feeling. You cannot package it, market it, or sell it in pill form.
Joy is a choice that once made will affect you and everyone you come in contact with for the rest of the day.
Joy isn’t always smiling, it isn’t always laughter. Joy is not floating on Cloud 9 or making sure everybody thinks your life is perfect, without bump or struggle.
Joy is just this, the peace and contentment that comes from knowing that God is in control no matter what happens. It believes that His sacrifice paid the price in full and now we can live forgiven.
Joy is choosing to find “the good” (Romans 8:28) in all situations.
Joy is choosing to let God rule even when your world feels out of control.
Joy is just resting, just accepting, and just knowing that God is in all.
No, joy is not a feeling. Joy is a choice!

I choose joy! Daily.

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16: 11
