Friday SHINE.....

Today's Reading:  Mark 11:1-19
Saturday 5/18:  Mark 11:20-33
Sunday 5/19:  Mark 12:1-27

Happy Fun Friday, SHINE girls! I really hope you have spent a lot of time rejoicing this week. My prayer is that your memory verse is deeply planted into that pretty little heart and will grow fruit of JOY in your daily lives.

Sometimes we think that we need a circumstance to make us rejoice. It's not true though.

We can rejoice because we are the daughter of the King of Kings.{2 Corinthians 6:18} We can rejoice because we are the apple of God's eye.{Zechariah 2:8} We can rejoice because no matter the mountain facing us, or the valley we are knee deep in, He carries us. {Psalm 68:19}

Our Fun Friday Challenge:

Fill in the blanks:

Although___________________, I will still Rejoice.

No matter what happens with _________________, I will still Rejoice.

God, I am not sure what You are doing in this situation_________________, yet I will still Rejoice.

After you fill in those blanks, pray and ask the Lord to help you to Rejoice in all things starting today!

It doesn't take a circumstance to get us rejoicing, it just takes a heart committed to finding the Joy in the midst of the struggle.

Lord, bless these SHINE girls.Where Joy is lacking, fill them right now with Joy unspeakable. We commit our hearts to seek Joy every single day. Let us not miss the opportunity to see You in all things. Even the valleys, Father. Tune our hearts to Joy. 

choosing Joy,
