Philippians 4:4-7 Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
How do you rejoice when your world is falling apart? When you receive one piece of bad news after another?
I have had one of those weeks…. God’s ways are not the ways of this world. When I want to scream, God tells me not to worry, and remain calm. WHAT?! This is so much easier to say than to live. So, I will move forward with gentleness as I draw near to God in prayer. Because I am not strong enough to carry the weight of the world, but God is!
This week and always, may God grant you peace which transcends all understanding as we rejoice in His love for us.
