Thanksgiving For All Things

During the Thanksgiving holiday season there may be those that struggle with being thankful especially when they are finding themselves in dire straits. Some people struggle with being able to give thanks when circumstances in their lives are not what they have planned or are outside their ability to control or change. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, "give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

God's purpose for our lives is worked out through the events that happen to us...good and bad. We can take comfort in knowing that His love for us is not determined by our circumstances. Our marital status, finances, and relationships may fluctuate or totally break apart, but in spite of that, we must give Him thanks, praise and glory in all things.

Being thankful to God honors God, 1 Samuel 2:30 says, "those who honor me I will honor". So, when we honor God, he will honor us. God has a purpose in every trial and tribulation we face. This season remember the good that comes out of the bad. Thank God for the blessings you have and the blessings that are to come.

May you all have a blessed holiday season!
