Whom have I in heaven but you?
And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
When all else fades away, can I still be characterized by the fullest joy?
Rejoice always. 1 Thessalonians 5:16
In everything give thanks, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Th. 5:18
Spiritual depression or unhappiness in the Christian life is very often due to our failure to recognize the greatness of the gospel.

God has a great way of tying concepts together from different sources to get my attention. Here is an excerpt from an email I received this morning:
[While] meditating on Psalm 77 this morning, [we] were reminded that in the trials of life, we CHOOSE to remember God and to refocus our minds on the goodness and past faithfulness of God. The battle begins and ends in the MIND! May we set our minds on things ABOVE this day (Colossians 3) and may we take every thought captive in obedience to Christ, replacing our worrisome thoughts with God’s promises! (Phil. 4:8; 2 Cor. 10:5)
Press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:14
Seek Christ and obey Him.
Praise the LORD today for His faithfulness, goodness, sovereignty, and gift of salvation!
