I Thessalonians 5:18(NKJ): "Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you, in Christ Jesus."
Some would say in light of all things that is going on today in our world,nation, communities, our individual lives, how can we be thankful? So much heartache and sorrow and suffering and pain, how is it possible to be obedient to this--the very word of God.
May I suggest that the only way that it would be possible is in knowing that this is not our home, if you are a believer in Jesus Christ. Though it may seem hard , even somewhat impossible, we are on our way to a better place. Jesus overcame and we must overcome. We are bypassing all the hard places on our way to eternal bliss. We give thanks because everyday is one step closer to being with Him. It is just a matter of perspective; not thankful for what I see, hear, or feel. Thankful for what I know and "Who," I know.
Blessings in Jesus Name.
