In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials. —1 Peter 1:6
Tough times can bring pain and sadness—and they don’t seem to promise any good news at all. But Peter told us to “greatly rejoice” in them (1:6-7). He wanted us to look ahead to the forever joy that is promised—a joy that will help us understand the temporary tough times. —Dave Branon
I choose joy today no matter what. ‘Nuf said.
