Rejoice in the Lord !!

rejoice in the lord

They say joy is not affected by your circumstances or situation.

As a child of God or woman of faith, we are told to rejoice in the Lord.Rejoice in the sense that never ever be sad … you just keep dancing and thanking God because of who he is. ( Perfect love )

Some months or phases in life are definitely tougher than others, so we often forgot this commandant which is to simply to rejoice. I am as guilty of this as the next person, some days some situations get me a bit cranky. Believe me, cranky me is not someone you want to meet.

I will never admit to this but this friend of mine came to stay with me for what was supposed to be just a week or 2 but I somehow turned into 2 months. She was stranded or kinda homeless due to some situations.But every morning she got up rejoicing, singing and thanking God & for what she had while praying for what she wanted.She was really living by faith. I will be the 1st one to admit … That I am not a morning person. (As a physio you would think I would be right? WRONG  !!!)

God knows that she used to get on my last nerve. When I say the last nerve I mean the very last one.. Then she would proceed to dance all over it.!!  Until one morning while on the bus to placement. I read my daily devotional which talked about rejoicing.Then I finally got it. I calmly said a thank you prayer for all my many blessings .

Since then I have been learning to rejoice. Rejoicing makes everything better. For some reason, it didn’t matter. That I was tired from being up at 4:00 AM to study before placement. I just had pure joy the rest of the day.All my problems became irrelevant simply because I had chosen to rejoice instead of worrying.

I rejoice because I run things with the one who owns tomorrow

My favourite verse right now is Isiah 43 VS 2  #TeamJesusalldayeveryday

When you pass through deep waters,  I will be with you; your troubles will not overwhelm you.
When you pass through fire, you will not be burned;
    the hard trials that come will not hurt you.

 

As always hope this touches someone’s heart xx

  1. When you give thanks to almighty God, The unchangeable changer, with a grateful heart, He will definitely do more… For this reason, I have learnt to thank Him in all my steps to greater heights…
