Even in the midst of trials that will surely come your way, find something to rejoice about. The Apostle Paul tells us to rejoice in the Lord always. (Philippians 4:4) Of course this is not always easy to do, especially when things seem to be going wrong. However, there is always something to rejoice about—and it’s good medicine.
