Giving Thanks Always

Hello Readers! This is such a sweet time of year. I love thinking about our blessings. But, did you know that even our struggles are blessings? Read with me James 1:2-4 “2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4 Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.”

Next time, you are experiencing a struggle or a storm of life, consider it a joyful time because God is maturing and molding you into a stronger person. I know during this time it is hard to think this way. We must be thankful during the good times, the hard times, and everything in between. Just remember to pray and keep close to The Lord and He will help you. We are reminded of that in Deuteronomy 31:6 “6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Join me as I pray. Lord, you are perfect and all knowing. Some of us are facing uncertain times, major decisions, struggles, while others are experiencing happiness and joy. Help us during these times. Hold us and carry us through life on Earth. Lord, we are eagerly awaiting Your Return. Thank you for everything. You are so good to us. In Jesus Name, Amen!

Be a blessing,
~M
