Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV
In this life we may face illness and hardship, yet the Lord asks us to give thanks no matter what the circumstance is.
Even on tough days, we can find something to be thankful for.
Joy is not the kind of false happiness that commercials display on TV. Joy is knowing that God loves us and saved us. Our lives are full of abundance. We don’t always see it, but God is always blessing us.
When we pray continually, we remember that we don’t need to make assumptions, react in anger, or take things personally. We can simply pray and ask God to help us with the emotions that we are experiencing, and He will help us. Amen.
