I wake up many mornings fighting for gladness (Monday's are the worst).  It seems circumstances often define the difficulty of this struggle.  It is as if there is a voice in my head reminding me that gladness is not within my reach today.  Sometimes it points out the difficulties of my job, other times it reminds me of family issues, it also can point to future worries, or confidence issues I have with myself.  Each morning I have the choice of listening to this voice, or listening to my Lord.  Because the voice that say's you can't be glad, is not the Lord.  Gladness is about eternity, grace, and the promise of God's presences in and through my life, TODAY.

Gladness does not come from my circumstances, position or even my ability.  Gladness comes from the Lord.

Psalms 4:7, "You have put gladness in my heart.."
