Teen Devotion and Bible Verse on Rejoicing

This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it. – Psalm 118:24 (NLT)

Do you ever struggle with not wanting to rejoice? Maybe the school year hasn’t turned out as you had hoped. Perhaps you’re going through a really tough season in your life, and it just feels almost impossible to rejoice.

It’s pretty hard to want to rejoice when it feels like things aren’t going the way you’d like them to.

So how do you find ways to rejoice and be glad when you don’t feel it?

One easy way is to start to make a list. Grab a piece of paper or notes on your phone. List small things to be thankful. Maybe it’s that you don’t have to worry about your history presentation because that class is canceled. Can you thank God that the sun is out? What about all the extra time you have? Can you thank God for more time to spend reading your Bible?

Even if it’s small, work to find ways to rejoice. Even in the worst circumstances, if you try hard enough you can find something to rejoice about!
