rejoicing

Command and circumstance

When I am consumed by my problems – stressed out about my life, my family, and my job – I actually convey the belief that I think the circumstances are more important than God’s command to always rejoice.  In other words, that I have a ‘right’ to disobey God because of the magnitude of my responsibilities.

Francis Chan

I came across this quote on one of the blogs I follow, and it seemed very relevant to students such as myself at exam time.
