Weekend Wisdom: Romans Reminder

Just a little reminder from Romans on how to deal not only with distressful days but with every day.

Rejoice in hope,

Be patient in tribulation,

Be constant in prayer.

Romans 12:12

And yes, I am preaching to me more than you. Last Monday brought the most tribulation I’ve seen in a long time.

Tribulation – noun – distress or suffering resulting from oppression or persecution


So whether life brings you distress called Monday, widowhood, divorce, or any other numerous tribulations, remember Romans 12:12.

Then go buy yourself some chocolate.
