Rejoice : to feel joy or great delight Merriam-Webster Dictionary
To feel great delight. To be filled to the brim with love and peace and passion for Christ.
"In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith - more precious than gold that perishes though it be tested by fire - may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ." 1 Peter 1:6-7 ESV
Although we experience trials and tears and heartbreaks throughout this life, one day there will be no more tears. Only praise and glory and honor. And rejoicing.
When we have those hard days, where nothing seems to go right, there is always reason for rejoicing.
You are alive.
You are loved.
Tomorrow is a new day. Don't continue carrying the burden and pain of yesterday. Lay them at the feet of your Savior and rejoice!
