I choose the joy of God instead of pain.
We have a choice. We can allow our critical thoughts and experiences in the world be the envoy to pain, or what if we realized we had the power within us that makes all pain impossible. Our thoughts cannot hurt us. What happens in the world cannot harm us. It is our thoughts and beliefs that do. We can rise above. We can see the light of a new day. As Jesus says at the end of our reference (Lesson 190), “Pain is illusion; joy, reality. Pain is but sleep; joy is awakening. Pain is deception; joy alone is truth.” Today, watch your mind and choose your holiness. When you do, you will always choose the joy and peace of God.
