What are some things you might be doing all the time?
Breathing? Moving? Thinking?
What does God want us to do ALL the time? How about rejoicing?
Let’s talk about that and how we might be able to achieve it with God’s help by looking at Philippians 4:4-5.

Almighty God, as I begin the season of Lent and set aside time for reflection and repentance, help me to clearly see. Make me totally aware of my sinfulness, and that the wages of such sin is death. Convicted of my sins, lead me to a complete dependence upon your grace and mercy in Christ. Help me to change my sinful life, so that I might be an effective witness to your unconditional love, as it has impacted my life in amazing ways. I come before you in holy name of Jesus, to whom I cling forever, Amen.
In your name, now and always
