a verse I’ve been thinking a lot about lately:
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
emphasis my own. on the words i have trouble with. such a tall order…
i think back on a couple of people that asked me this past year how to know God’s will for your life…and i wish i’d thought to quote this to them, that this is God’s will for you–to be joyful, pray, and give thanks, no matter what is going on.
not that i’ve got that down, personally. but i’m working on it, and I’m praying hard.
