5.3.23: Rejoicing

This is the last of several prayers I received in rapid succession last Wednesday morning:

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

Rejoicing comes
Through saying Yes,
No matter what God sends,

And thanking him
With all your heart,
Until this journey ends.

So don’t resist
The Father’s will,
But make it your delight:

Find joy in your vocation,
For you’re precious
In his sight.

You are precious to me. You are honored, and I love you (Isaiah 43:4; NLT).


Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called (Ephesians 4:1; KJV). 

Precious is their blood in his sight (Psalm 72:14; NIV). 

Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his faithful servants (Psalm 116:15; NIV).
