Daily Bible Verse and Devotion – Psalm 32:11

I remember the Christmas my grandma passed away. Nothing that year felt right. My grandma had been the one who had held our family together. All the Christmas traditions and fun passed away with her. That Christmas was one of the hardest ones I had ever faced. Nothing felt normal, and it felt like my family was being torn apart.

How about you? Will this Christmas be a difficult one for you? Are there things going on in your life right now that are causing you to be less than joyful? If so, consider today’s verse.

Rejoice in the LORD and be glad, you righteous; sing, all you who are upright in heart! – Psalm 32:11 (NIV)

It doesn’t tell us to be joyful if circumstances are perfect in our lives. Instead today’s verse just tells us to rejoice in the Lord. Doing that can be really hard when it feels like nothing is going the way you’d like it to go. However, we can do it. We can choose to find our joy in Jesus.

So challenge yourself to find joy today. Even if things aren’t the way you’d like them. In the middle of the difficulty and the storm know that Jesus is good. He loves you and wants the best for you!

Today’s Truth: Jesus is my joy!
