Stuck on rejoicing?
As I looked at the verse on my calendar page for October - "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I say, rejoice!" ~ Philippians 4:4 - I thought about the possibility of rejoicing always.
Getting stuck - fastened, cemented, fixed, secured, locked in, unmoved, steadfast (and a whole bunch of other words) - on rejoicing always. Truly, this would be a positive kind of thing to be stuck doing.
Our tendency is to rejoice when things are going well, so it would mean doing something counter to our human nature, don't you think?
The key to me is knowing and trusting that God will use all things for His purposes and His plan. Even the things that don't go well, look bad from the outside, seem like disasters. He will use those very things to bring glory to Himself and part of that glory does come through us rejoicing always.
So how about intentionally spending this month rejoicing until you feel stuck!
