“Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
We have so many reasons to rejoice and be glad. We need to realize that collecting comforts in this world won’t bring any lasting joy or happiness on this Earth. But what will give us a true lasting joy?
1. PRIORITIES – One of the most important things we can do is make God our first priority! “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33
2. STOP WORRYING – Many people constantly worry for so many things that prevent them from being happy and enjoying what God has in store for them. “Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? And if worry can’t accomplish a little thing like that, what’s the use of worrying over bigger things?” Luke 12:25-26
3. GIVE THANKS – Write down on a piece of paper all of the blessings in your life—even the little ones—and you will see that no matter the challenges you are facing, you are blessed! “Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His steadfast love endures forever!” 1 Chronicles 16:34
