I am facing some super had stuff as I write this message and am reminded of a beautiful lesson God has taught me over the years.
No matter what is going on in our lives, whether easy or hard, good or bad, happy or sad, etc., we can and should CHOOSE to BE THANKFUL even as we face what we face!
Thankful for what? For the Lord, for His love, grace, mercy, peace, forgiveness, joy, goodness, provision, strength, protection, help, wisdom, direction, etc. and for all His endless blessings He bestows upon us daily.
God makes abundantly clear throughout the Bible that we are to praise, bless, and thank Him continually no matter our circumstances.
Are you? Oh, may it be so!
“in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV
“…I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalms 34:1 NKJV
