When God is for us and with us and in us, there is always a reason for rejoicing. A heart constantly rejoicing in the Lord will inevitably have eyes to see the blessings and mercies given daily through Him. Even on Mondays. Even in a pandemic. Even away from family. Even at work. Even in the mundane. If nothing else today, I aim to remember and rejoice that God is for me, that He is with me, and that He abides in me. What hope and comfort His permanence gives my soul.
