Rejoice, in the midst of trials

untitledkkkk.pngRejoice in the Lord always, I will say again Rejoice, Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything , but in every situation by prayer and present your request to God. And the peace of God which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

(Philippians 4:4-7)

This is the time of year that many of us are rejoicing, with such things as graduations, proms, new birth, weddings, end of school, vacation time and maybe you can think of some more. However in spite of rejoicing some of you are saying to yourself are you crazy, perhaps nuts, do I realize what perhaps you just might be going thru, loss of a job, a home, divorce, loss of a child, sickness of a love one and even death itself, no I don’t however God our creator does, he knows you better than you know yourself, or even better than anyone knows you. In this time of your life when somehow you can’t seem to see past the dark clouds you need to REJOICE. There is a song that goes like this Rejoice in the Lord Always, Again I say Rejoice, Rejoice, Rejoice, in the Lord Always. When you and I take the focus off of ourselves and on to God, things begin to change, your problems or your situation has not change however you have within yourself. You see this is why we as Christians need to be in fellowship with one another, because when our lives seem difficult to handle this is when we can lean on others.
