Thoughts Along the Way

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.”

Philippians 4:4


The amazing thing about God’s grace is that “it always is.” No matter the weather, no matter the circumstance, always and everywhere God, through our Lord Jesus Christ is with you. It seems as though we are nearing the end to a season of pandemic which lingered longer than we ever imagined; lives were impacted in so many ways and will continue to be impacted as each of us heals and recharges for a new day. Rejoicing in the Lord does not mean that life is smooth-running every moment but rather every moment is filled with the presence of our Lord. This is a season for many of new beginnings as many graduate from school or just “graduate from a crazy year to begin new and exciting adventures. With every adventure, there are challenges along the way. We rejoice that we can “in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let our requests be made known to God.” (Philippians 4:6) Life is an adventure no matter whether we just graduated, never graduated, of forgot when we graduated school! The true celebration is the presence of Jesus, guiding our footsteps at the start of the journey, through the journey, and even to the “end of the age.” Grace not only will follow you, it will carry you where ever you go in life, and that is worth rejoicing! With every breath, rejoice that “the Lord is near.” Through the good times, bad times, and all the times in between “rejoice in the Lord always.”  Thank you Jesus!
