Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Our joy, prayers and thankfulness should stay the course no matter what difficulties or situations we may be in. When hard times are upon us we can be thankful for God’s holy presence and the good that God will accomplish though we find ourselves in these hard times. There is always someone who we can share our past experiences with so that they might avoid some of the same pitfalls we have found ourselves in. Give thanks today no matter what situation or trial you find yourself in.
