1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV
 Rejoice always,  pray continually,  give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
What a neat summary of how to live when we know Jesus as our saviour and Lord!
Rejoice always – not just when things are going well but remember even in the dark time that you are precious to God.
Pray continually – there is nothing too difficult for our great God and we can discover his way as we pray through the details of today.
Give thanks – develop an “attitude of gratitude” and quit moaning and see the difference it will make! The world needs some thankful people!
Lord, thank you that you are the reason we can rejoice, you are the fortress we can always run to, you are the provider of every good gift.
