Be Thankful at all times
It is east to feel gratitude(Thankful) at times when everything seems to be going well. All the bills are paid; we have more than enough clothes to wear; we have a roof over our heads and food in the refrigerator; we have not had any health setbacks; we find our work enjoyable and rewarding. “It’s all good!”
But bad things happen in life sometimes. There are times when we don't understand what is happening or why.
1 THESSALONIANS 5:18 No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
We can always be thankful for many things:
1. God loves us. 2. Jesus died for us. 3. Our sins are forgiven.
4. Jesus has promised to never leave us.
5. God is our Father and He is faithful. 6. He is coming back again to call us
7. We have an eternal home in Heaven.
What we choose to focus on determines our attitude. While we may face problems, we don't have to let those problems become our focus.Our attitude determines our altitude.
We can choose to give thanks and praise God for His goodness and faithfulness.
When we trust that God is in control, we can give thanks to Him in good times and bad times. “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise His name” (Psalm 100:4)
Also, think of the pleasure it must bring our Father God when we stay in faith and focus on Him, instead of being distracted by the stuff the devil does trying to steal our faith.
No matter what happens,I choose to always be thankful to God,
