Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

Balance in Life

1 Peter 1:6 (ESV)
       In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, 

The balance of faith in you, Our God and Father, is that in our human weakness we experience the sorrow of grief and in our spirit we experience the joy of hope, believing that Romans 8:28 is true and reliable. Jesus, you experienced such a complementary contraction. “Looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

Thank you Father that we do not need to deny the reality of our grief nor the joy of our faith in you. It is a strange mystery we may not understand but we do know as 1 Thessalonians 4:13 (ESV) says: We do ”…. not grieve as others do who have no hope.”

Thank you Father that you give us the ability to balance our grief and joy in all of life’s experiences.

In Jesus strong Name, Amen.
