"give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
This verse hit me like a ton of bricks the other day. I've read it many times but it hit home to me. Give thanks IN ALL .... wow, all things give thanks. That means we are to thank God for the bad things as well?! It is very easy to thank God for everything that is going well in our lives. Although the bad things do not come directly from God...he may allow them to happen. So remember to thank God for His presence in our lives. But looking back over some of the bad things in my life I can see God's hand at work. They all lead to Him, to bring Him the glory. So the next time something isn't going your way, remember that God is in control. Give it over to him. Easier said than done I know!!
Are you remembering God in ALL circumstances?
