A Cheerful Heart

For Each Day

vincent van gogh olive groveDear God, Help me to keep a cheerful heart. I sometimes let circumstances and trials overcome my emotions. I let stress dictate my responses and I act in less than a loving way to people around me. Lord, give me patience and a happy spirit when I prefer my temper. Keep me from indulging my sense of injury. I thank You for those whose own cheerful hearts uplift me and give me perspective. Lord, forgive me for considering myself more important than others.
