Philippians 4:4

“Rejoice in the Lord always…”

Written from prison, by a guy facing execution, explaining how he’d been spared ‘sorrow. upon sorrow’ by his mate’s recovery from a near fatal illness.

This is part of the Christian’s emotional reality. We feel destroyed, and we find delight. Extremely hard pressed, and we know his peace.  Stressed and straining, alongside being satisfied in him.  Sorrowful, yet always rejoicing.

It’s not simple, but is life under the sun.

We follow the One acquainted with grief, and anointed with joy.

“…again I say rejoice.”
