My wife and I have had a wonderful 7 weeks. A cruise to Alaska, a trip to the prairies and a visit from our prairie relatives. A great time on all three events. It got me thinking, as Christians we are prone to be thankful for the good things that happen in our lives but I wonder if some of the “not so good” things we should also be thankful for. God uses everything to teach us and help us in our Christian lives. I’m sure, however, like me, you sometimes wonder about those problems and other issues that come along if it’s really possible to be thankful for these difficulties. Our Bible tells us we should
1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
- Rejoice always,
- pray without ceasing,
- in everything give thanks: For this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
Our growth as Christians should include; thankfulness, authenticity, acceptance, peace, humility and a genuine care for others. The following hymn, I think, expresses what I’m trying to say.
