Rejoice In The Lord

"Rejoice in the Lord.
I will say it again: Rejoice!
Let your gentleness be evident to all.
The Lord is near.
Do not be anxious about anything,
but in everything, by prayer and petition,
with thanksgiving, present your request
to God.
And the peace of God, which transcends
all understanding, will guard your hearts
and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true,
whatever is noble, whatever is right,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely,
whatever is admirable- if anything is
excellent or praiseworthy- think
about such things."

Philippians 4:4-8

Whatever our situations maybe in life, we must always rejoice in the Lord. For we know that we have an inheritance that far outweighs all that the world can offer, and that is, eternal life with the Lord. Let us always focus on God's presence in our lives, the countless blessings He has bestowed upon us and the everlasting peace that He has placed in our hearts which nobody can take away from us. In order that we may not be off tracked by the allures and traps of this world, let us only think of positive thoughts mainly centered on the Lord and we will have a peaceful and abundant life on earth. Never allow our minds to be occupied by negative thoughts fed to us by the enemy but only glorious thoughts about the Lord and His kingdom.

Hi teJan,
Yes, I am praying for you and for the baby in your womb. We should always rejoice in the Lord in all kinds of circumstances because others will see our inner joy and they will be attracted to our faith in the Lord. Thanks for your visit and inspired comments. God bless you all always.

Thanks for this great reminder Kuya Mel, sometimes we are so engulfed with the negative stuff that surround us that we forgot to appreciate all the positive things that God ha s given us.
