Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
To rejoice in the Lord means to be delighted, joyful or glad in the Lord. It is an expression that comes from the heart and is the result of knowing God in a personal way. Sometimes in our lives it may seem as though there are a lot of things to rejoice about; while at other times the burdens of life can weigh heavy upon us. Regardless of what the circumstances are in our lives, Jesus instructed us to rejoice. Our names are written in heaven. Luke 10:20 says, "However, do not rejoice that the spirits submit to you, but rejoice that your names are written in heaven." This is one thing we can always rejoice about no matter what we are going through.
