06 A Thanksgiving Reflection: Rejoice, Pray, and Give Thanks

What does rejoice, pray continually, and give thanks have in common?

Here’s a hint: They are listed in a well-known verse we always hear in November.

 In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Paul writes: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”

Three simple but sometimes hard commands to live by:

  1. Rejoice always

  2. Pray without ceasing

  3. Give thanks in all circumstances

In today’s episode, Missy talks about these three commands and encourages listeners to create a list of things they are thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving! And remember to live boldly for Jesus and let your light shine bright for Him!
