Rejoice in the Lord
Rejoicing, praying, and expressing gratitude is easy to do when life is going smoothly, but what about when you’re struggling just to get out of bed? Jesus knew you’d have difficult times, and His antidote for a stifled spirit is praise – not for the struggle, but for His presence and promise of eternal life with Him. He loves you. He died for you. And those are all the right reasons to rejoice in Him and be glad no matter what.
Jesus, I rejoice in You right now and thank You from my heart for the sacrifice You made on the cross for me. I am truly grateful. Amen.
