Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again–rejoice! [NLT] Philippians 4:4
Even in the midst of that struggle, let your heart be full of joy. You may not have much to be glad about, but that single action of “making a decision to be joyful regardless of what may be happening” gives you a better perspective on things. Why? Because you have made a choice to always be glad, you will always see the positive aspect of every negative situation. So maybe Christmas is coming and maybe it’s a season that fills you with so much trepidation, rejoice and be glad. Maybe it’s a lonely time, or simply you don’t have enough to make it as cheerful as you would like it to be, rejoice and be glad. Don’t weary yourself unnecessarily. The Lord Jesus always has a way of making everything beautiful, and everything will work out marvellously in your life in Jesus name. Amen. And so I say it again. Rejoice.
