Give Thanks!


1 Thess. 5:18 in the Amp. Bible says Thank [God] in everything [no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks], for this is the will of God for you ...
It is so hard to give thanks with so many bad things going on around us. Loosing a loved one, lost jobs, finance problems, health problems and the list goes on. But God says to we are to give thanks in everything. I look around me and see all the difficulties and wonder how we are going to make it another week but the Lord always provides and in this I give thanks but I know I sure don't give enough. So I am going to post this passage on my mirror and my fridge and challenge myself to give thanks more than once a day.
Are you up for the challenge?
Have a great end of the week! Blessings to all, Karen
