Always be joyful and never stop praying. Whatever happens, keep thanking God because of Jesus Christ. This is what God wants you to do.
I Thessalonians 5:16-18
When you reach a point in life where you honestly don't know which way to go, what should you do? These verses give some very specific advice for those who can't see clearly what their next step should be.
First, God wants His children to always be joyful. If you are not filled with joy as a child of God are you not telling everyone around you that you don't trust God?
Secondly, your "prayer life" must not be interrupted by the rough waves in the storms of life on this earth. As soon as you say "Amen" it is time to begin another prayer! Prayer is not a thing you do, it is rather the "breath" of your spirit! You breathe in and your life is filled with His Spirit. Then you exhale in praise and honor to God. While life lasts, you must continually breathe!
Finally, God wants you to thank Him no matter what happens in your life! If your worst fear becomes reality, the very best thing you can do is to PRAISE GOD. You don't praise Him for the evil thing which came upon you, but you PRAISE GOD for being who He is and you trust Him with all your heart!
"Lord Jesus, help me to be joyful and continually prayerful today no matter what may happen. And may I praise Your Holy Name forever. Amen."
