Dear Church Family,
“Let us rejoice today and be glad.” Psalm 118:24.
Many of you have some very serious struggles going on in your lives right now. Yet this verse challenges us, encourages us, to rejoice. God doesn’t place that challenge before us in a void. We can look around us and see his hand-written notes of encouragement – a bird at the feeder, the first dandelions, a beautiful sunrise.
Whatever our rejoicing looks like, let it be God centred. He loves you, and he gave us the capacity to rejoice in him.
“Let us rejoice today and be glad.”
And from the end of that psalm: “You are my God, and I will praise you; you are my God, and I will exalt you. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.”
