Hills and Valleys January 20, 2015 – Posted in: Rejoice – Tags: 1 Thessalonians, Pray, Thanks
One of my favorite bands is “The Rocket Summer”. Several years ago the lead singer, Bryce, wrote a song entitled Hills and Valleys that sums up this week’s shirt.
“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances” -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
We all know how to give thanks, rejoice, and pray. The tricky part is the Lord asks us to do this without ceasing, meaning, all the time. That’s where I struggle. I am good for a short while and then life usually gets “good” or “busy” and I just lose sight of where my focus should be. It takes a bump in the road to bring me back. My prayer for you this week is that you can rejoice in the situations the Lord gives you this week, give thanks for your many blessings, and pray for those around you.
Say you’re with me
There’s gold ahead, there’s golden dreams
And life’s hills and valleys
Yeah, will you hold on with me?
