This week really wore me down for some reason. Anyone else? I’ve had this verse on repeat in my mind:
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice. Pray. Give thanks. This is God’s will for us always! Not just when circumstances are favorable, but all. the. time. I think it’s important to note that God doesn’t necessarily call us to give thanks for all circumstances, but in them. I am such a work in progress when it comes to practicing that continually.
Whether this weekend finds you working or resting or maybe a little bit of both, I hope you can find the time to practice rejoicing, praying, and giving thanks. I’m excited because we have friends coming for dinner tonight, and then tomorrow we’ll spend the day with family who are in town. Sunday I work again, so I am going to make the most of my rest day. See you back here next week!
