1162404_love_god_and_your_neighbor_1 Give thanks in all circumstances sounds easier than it is to be truthful with  you. It is something I must learn to do more of I think. It’s something I must work on, and so, with this verse in mind I will try to apply it in this day and the next.

Do any of you struggle with this?

  1. Yes. It’s certainly not an easy thing to put into practice. It doesn’t necessarily mean we are going to be ‘happy’ in all circumstances, but we can have contentment and peace which only comes from trusting in God, and knowing that He will ultimately work it out for His perfect good plan (even if we can’t see that happening at the time).

    • Thanks for those encouraging words Carla… I reckon you are right. It will all work out for God’s glory for those who trust Him and follow His will.

  2. Struggle? Oh yeah…It’s not exactly a default setting in the human heart when trouble comes.

    I have been grasping James 5:13 recently. If suffering, pray! If cheerful, praise!
