Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
How can you be joyful and pray all the time? How can you give thanks even in bad times? It isn't easy but with God's help and strength we can do anything. Just like the beauty of the Desert Candles, that only grow after a winter with lots of rain, will our soul overflow with joy when we have Christ living in us. Stay in His Word, Seek Him, and Praise Him. Yes even in the bad times we can give God the glory and praise because it could have been worse.
