Brothers and sisters: Rejoice in the Lord always. I shall say it again: rejoice!
Your kindness should be known to all. The Lord is near. Have no anxiety at all, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, make your requests known to God. Then the peace of God that surpasses all understanding will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
When you give yourself fully to our Lord, you will always have joy in your heart! Rejoice in His love, mercy and grace and you will not know sadness. Your life will not be perfect but when you have his joy, your heart will always be at peace.
Prayer: Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice! In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Cry out with joy and gladness: for among you is the great and Holy One of Israel.
