Be Thankful for Everything

Be Thankful for Everything

A woman raises her arms in gratitude on a country road in autumn
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.—1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV
Jesus wants us to be thankful in Him—to trust that difficult circumstances are there to help us grow—and to be grateful for dark and troubling days because those are often when God’s Light shines the brightest. He wants us to be thankful in Him because He is our constant, stable Source of strength and comfort.

Today's Prayer:

Lord Jesus, because of You I am learning to be thankful for every single breath.
