Rejoicing Always



"16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." - 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18


In light of my recent circumstances (falling while rock climbing and breaking my back in three places) this could really be a challenging passage for me. However, by the grace of God, this is exactly what I have been doing!

I continue to rejoice in the fact that God is God regardless of circumstances and He is always with me and will never leave me.

I continue to pray (talk) to God about how I’m feeling and the challenges I’m facing each day through my recovery, and I continue to pray for everyone else who is in here with me, many of whom are seemingly worse off than me.

I also continue to give thanks to God for everything He has done for me thus far and will continue to do for me, regardless of exactly what my ultimate outcome is.

How do you respond to this passage?

Hope to see you soon.

Bless ya,


Steven King
