Always giving thanks

And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.
‭‭1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:18‬ ‭TPT‬‬

In the good times

The hard times

The I don’t even know how I feel times

The restful times

The can’t catch a break times

The new beginning times

The throw up my hands “I’m done” times

The incandescently happy times…

In every moment, in the midst of every circumstance, we have the opportunity to choose the posture of gratitude. This does not mean we need to be thankful for the hard times, but we can change our perspective to find God’s goodness throughout all of what life brings.

May each of us be more intentional this Thanksgiving week to live out gratitude and see God’s goodness in the midst of everything.
