Rejoice in the Lord always!

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!  Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near.  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:4-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Philippians 4:4 is my favorite verse of Scripture.  And it's not because I always do rejoice in the Lord, but because this verse reminds me that I should always rejoice.  God has written these words on my heart and it seems they come to my mind every time I encounter a problem.  And eventually, I feel that peace that surpasses understanding, no matter the outcome of the issue.  It indeed becomes a "whatever" moment.

Fighting feelings of anxiety and distress when the world is constantly throwing "stuff" at us are battles we cannot win without God's help.  I am truly thankful for the grace given by God to simply rejoice in Him and lay every weight at His feet.  That's when I am given the strength to keep going and gain peace to keep right on rejoicing!  Thank You, Jesus!
