As Christians, we are to rejoice. Rejoice in the good times, even rejoice in the bad times. We don't need to be anxious as to why things happen, but in these certain times, let YOUR requests be made unto God.
COLOSSIANS3: 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Even IN the biggest problems we face, we can go to Him and pour our hearts to Him, and know that He is working them for OUR good and for HIS glory. Then, as the scripture says, fill our minds with Psalms and hymns , singing unto the Lord. sing..sing sing.. to the top of your lungs if you have to... to me, that is giving Him glory, not only for what He has done, but going ahead and doing it for what HE IS GOING TO DO IN THE FUTURE.
Our minds can get the best of us ,if we let it. I fight the '''what if's'' ,ALOT! But, I have to say, that over the past year, I have learned to depend on Jesus like NEVER before... Sometimes, it does take certain trials to get you where you need to be. It takes them for God to mold you, and make you BETTER for Him.. No, I know I am not perfect, but I am forgiven, and that is really ALL that matters .A year ago this week, I was so downhearted.. I really was uncertain of what was going to happen... My sis was had just finished up all of her chemo treatments, and we were playing the waiting game, as a family..... I, personally, had just recently been faced with a true, discouraging time. I was lonely, and really confused, and a little, no ALOT hurt.. but I knew that God would see me through. When it seems that you have NO one sometime, and stuff gets thrown in your face, it is really hard to keep on keeping on, but you have too.... so, I made up my mind that I would just go on and trust Him, and not worry about things I had done or things I could not change, but to go on for Him.I am so thankful, cause it has helped me draw closer to Him, and also, I can rejoice in the fact that a year later, I have learned that JESUS is really all that matters, and these little things that I think do, DON'T!!!!!!!! I don't have to try to be anybody but MYSELF, and to worry about what God thinks about me, and to have a forgiving heart, and let GOD deal with those who still hold stuff against you, or still may need to forgive you in their heart. This is true biblical repentance.
Colossians 3:13King James Version (KJV)13 Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.
And also, after all the chemo treatments, and all that my sis had been through, she is still cancer free..
. THAT IS SOMETHING TO REJOICE ABOUT..and I can rejoice too, because God brought me through a valley of uncertainty, a valley of confusion, a valley of a broken heart. It has brought more Positive things in my life and made me dwell less on the negative, and things I know I can not change, the LORD can and will take care of that .... and showed me that I can do more, and be a better Christian for His good and for His glory. It took these certain things to really learn something.. and that is to REJOICE in the POSITIVE and the NEGATIVE things , God will give you the victory. Thankful I can rejoice today.. I am rejoicing!!! His love NEVER FAILS!!
