“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!” – Philippians 4:4
This word “rejoice” comes from the Greek word chairo. It means to rejoice exceedingly, to be glad, to thrive. How can we have joy and be glad during the tough times in life?
When school finals are approaching and we can’t see the end of them, it’s hard to thrive. When a family member or friend dies, it may seem impossible to find joy. Or when you have one of those days when nothing seems to be going right, how can you be glad?
