Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:4-7 NIV
Start the day with a happy heart rejoicing in the Lord. Lift up your burdens to the Lord, He hears and answers prayer. Praying with thanksgiving gives us the peace of God because He is always with us. He will guard our hearts and mind. We can trust Him to get us through the dark patches of life.
