Joy. It’s an earmark of the Christian life, or at least it’s supposed to be. Being joyful isn’t always easy though. Read on to find encouragement to help you “rejoice in the Lord always.”
Some of the most recognizable words from the book of Philippians are “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again, ‘Rejoice!'” (Philippians 4:4)
They were written by a man in chains so we kind of have to take him seriously.
I mean, if he could rejoice, can’t we?
But, there must be a reason he had to keep reminding the church to rejoice. I think he must have known just how hard it is to do sometimes.
Maybe you do, too.
