BE THANKFUL FOR ALL EVENTS AND ALL THINGS
It is easy to praise and thank the
Lord in the good times. What about thanking Him in the bad times too?
All of us have faced stressful
times in our life: loss of a loved one; loss of finances; loss of a job; loss of health;
etc. We may think of the loss of these "things" very negatively.
Truly God has all of our lives
mapped out from the very beginning. Each circumstance we go through is meant for our
spiritual growth. Each one of our trials is meant to mold us into the person God wants
us to be.
We should choose this attitude when
thinking about ourselves or our brothers and sisters in the Lord: "Be patient with
me; God isn't finished with me yet".
Ephesians 5:20 - Always give thanks
to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Prayer: Dear Father
thank You for all things. Amen
