Hello friends! We’ve reached the day in the week where we could use a little encouragement to help us make it to the end. How has your week been? Have you been suffering? Doubtful? Hurt? Sad? Thankful? Made you read that word twice didn’t I? It’s hard to be thankful when we’re going through a tough time, trust me I know. It’s easy to look back after the fact and then be thankful. But have you ever considered being thankful during your trial or tribulation?
The bible has a LOT of verses about being thankful, and what better month to promote that then November. Last night in my youth group class, I had the kids look in their concordance for the words thanks, thankful and thanksgiving. We looked up several bible verses about when, how and why we should be thankful. Want to know a secret? They all said the same thing – we need to be thankful for Jesus. We need to be thankful for our salvation. We need to be thankful that God knows our every need, and takes care of every single one. We need to be thankful that God is with us, even during our trials. But how can we do that?
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
What’s been on your heart this week friends? I hope you’ll share in the comments, and please don’t forget to visit my friends and see what they’re sharing this week!
