Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice!
This is the classic Sunday school song that crossed my mind as I read celebrate. A simple song, yet such a reason to celebrate.
Isn’t it awesome guys, that we can thank God for the good and the bad? Imagine where we’d be if only the good things called for celebration. Yeah, I realize we definitely don’t feel like throwing a party when something really doesn’t go the way we wanted. That’s okay too. But, just the same, we thank God for putting us through that adversity, whether immediately or far after it has happened.
So thank you God. Thank you for creating all these situations in my life, and in each of our lives. The times of pure bliss, and the times we want to quit; these are all beautiful and blessed and times to celebrate.
