It’s a terrible thing to get to the place where we cannot rejoice in the Lord. As we begin taking our eyes off the Lord and counting or troubles instead of our blessings, before long we are blinded to the goodness of God.

Before Jesus went to the cross to die for our sins, He spent a lot of time doing good for others.

“And he was teaching in one of the synagogues on the Sabbath. And, behold, there was a woman which had a spirit of infirmity eighteen years, and was bowed together, and could in no wise lift up herself. And when Jesus saw her, he called her to him, and said unto her Woman thou art loosed from thine infirmity. And he laid his hands on her and immediately she was made straight, and glorified God.” St. Luke 13: 10-13

There are so many miracles that Jesus preformed. The greatest one was when He brought salvation to everyone that would accept it.

We can rejoice in the Lord and always be thankful for His many blessings.

“Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say, Rejoice” Philippians 4:4
