In Everything.

“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” I Thessalonians 5:18

One of the things I find most interesting about this verse is that is says in everything. Now, note that it doesn’t say for everything, but in everything. That means when we go through heartache and hardship we’re supposed to give thanks. When things aren’t going “our way” we’re supposed to give thanks. When all around us the world seems to be crumbling apart, we’re supposed to give thanks.

I wonder how our hearts would feel and what our lives would be like, if we truly did give thanks in all circumstances. How much more joy would our hearts hold? How much sweeter would our countenances be? How much more Jesus would people be able to see in us?

My blessing book entry for today: I am oh, so thankful for the love and care of my dear friends.
