There are so many aspects of the Christian life that are important but there is only one focus that we must devote ourselves to. That is: knowing Jesus better so that we may become more like Him in the light of His Presence. It's putting Jesus at the center of it all. 
So, before we get caught up in the problems at hand, we must rejoice at the blessings already in our lives. There, as we sing Him praises, we will find Jesus. 

Before we start trying to plan ahead for the future, we must rejoice in this day that God has blessed us with.
Jesus is here, now, in the present. 

Before we look at our faults that still exist in our flesh, we can rejoice at the redeeming works our Savior has already performed. How gracious is our God! 

Before we do anything, we must simply Praise. We discover more of Jesus when we lay everything down and just worship Him for who He is and what He has done and bask in the marvelous light of His Presence. When we bathe in His love for us and experience His warmth, peace, and joy. As we rest in God’s promises and thank Him for His unconditional love. Before entering the battlefield of life, soak in the mercies of this day. As Christians we have every reason to rejoice! 

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
–Philippians 4:4(NIV) 

May the steps of your life echo the tunes of songs of gratitude as you grow closer and closer to our beautiful Savior. The victory is ours and the song we sing is eternal!
