All throughout the Bible, we are told to rejoice in the Lord always.
Rejoicing does not only mean verbalizing with words, giving God praise.
Rejoicing also means brightening up, spinning around, and leaping for joy.
You rejoice with your countenance. Simply smiling is rejoicing. When times are tough, and are not going as planned, choose to smile and have a pleasant demeanor no matter what. Smile not because you feel like it, or because everything is perfect, but because you have faith. Smiling is a way of saying to God that you trust Him to be working all things out for your good. Choose to rejoice in the Lord! Smile and show everyone your trust is in the Lord. God’s love goes way beyond our difficulty. Even when we don’t see a way, God is making a way for us. Ask God to fill you with His overflowing love, joy and peace as you surrender your life to Him.
