Scripture for the day is Proverbs 15:30

The light of the eyes rejoices the heart,
    and good news refreshes the body.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, give me the joy that I need to live the day. I lack joy because I don’t spend sustained time in detailed thanksgiving for both temporal and spiritual gifts and blessings. And I don’t simply rejoice enough just in being in your presence. Provoke me to do the things that bring your joy into my life. Amen.
