"Be Cheerful no matter what; pray all the time;
thank God no matter what happens."
~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
No matter what.
All the time.
Are you kidding me????
Thursday night, when someone I thought was a friend, made a cold and hurtful comment?
Friday afternoon, when we learned the biopsy results of a young mother were malignant?
Saturday morning, when we learned of a great friend from college lost his battle with cancer and left behind two young boys and a wife?
Even on those times God??
When God doesn't heal the way we think He should.
When test results are not what we think they should be.
When times and schedules don't line up like we thought.
When feelings are hurt.
Maybe, Paul knows that- If we are cheerful and prayerful and thankful all the time....no matter what...we will see Him.
God, Thank You for your constant desire to hear our prayers.
In His Dust,
