GRATITUDE FOR UNWANTED THINGS

GRATITUDE FOR THE UNWANTED THINGS

GRATITUDE FOR THE UNWANTED THINGS

We should take every opportunity to reflect and acknowledge all the ways that we have been blessed.

Some blessings are more apparent than others. However; in reflection, we may see how even those things that challenged us, stretched us, and even hurt us was and is a blessing.

Take some time and think on this past year and give gratitude for all the situations, circumstances, and challenges. It may take looking with a humble heart to see the blessings…but there are always blessings.

Although, we may not be thankful for the specific situations, circumstances, or challenges…we can thank God for giving us the strength, wisdom, and perseverance it took to live through them.

It is always satan’s goal to break our faith. He wants us to believe all the bad things in life is God punishing us.

Although, it is true, there are always consequences to bear due to our own sin or when we are somehow caught up in someone else’s sin, it is not God causing us to sin so we can feel punished.

God will use our poor choices and unfortunate life events toward good. He can redeem these things, so they aren’t for naught,  just as He redeemed us from sin by His cleansing blood.

I pray that we will find it in us to reflect and be thankful for the seeming insurmountable obstacles that life may have thrown at us.

May we be genuinely thankful that we are stronger, wiser, more compassionate, forgiving, grateful, emphatic, kind, and loving.

May we grow closer to our God that is always with us, loves us, and protects us.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 AKJV

GOD LOVES YOU !!!
