Rejoice always. Give thanks in all circumstances. Be anxious about nothing. Sounds great, but what happens when life gets hard, and our circumstances stink? Do we put on a plastic smile and try to be more spiritual in our suffering?
Even when bad things happen, Philippians 4 reminds us of where we can find encouragement. It’s not about positive self-talk or pretending you feel peace or joy when you don’t.
Experience strength and stability as you learn the secret to contentment and why you can “rejoice always” no matter what the world throws at you!
