Day-by-Day – Day 79 – Thankfulness


~1 Thessalonians 5:18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

What is it in your life that is preventing you from fulfilling this verse? Is it your health? Is it your finances? Is it a bad marriage? Why would one thank God for such trials? I believe Paul wants us to thank God because we know that the Lord will be there to provide comfort, will shed light on our path, will give us counsel through His Word, and will carry us when we just can’t go one more step. Knowing this helps us to be grateful to our Heavenly Father. Therefore, it’s easy to give thanks in everything because we have peace – we know the Lord is in control!

“I thank God for my handicaps, for through them I found myself, my work and my God.” – Helen Keller
