When Happiness is Gone

AS WE GATHER:  There are times when there is no cause for celebration. There is nothing good. There is no hope or joy in life. Where do you turn for joy? Where can you look for hope? When it is too hard even to hold up your head in prayer, what do you do? Paul reminds us that there is never a situation in which we cannot rejoice. We can be content in all things, because the strength of God himself is sustaining us. We put our trust in the God who can do all things, and we rejoice, even when happiness is gone.
