Bible Verses: 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

"Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus."

Reflect and Respond:

Hopefully, you don't have to eat a field mouse today. But you may be facing other hardships. God asks us to give Him thanks, in these times of struggle. Why? One reason is because our act of thanksgiving helps us voice, and deepen our trust in God.

Prayer:

Father, I give You thanks today, knowing that You are close, You are with me in all my struggles. And You will be with me forever. Thank You for the hope I have in Your resurrection power. Amen.

Always be thankful to God, for he cares for me
Thank you for eternal life and for the sustenance and power you give to help me overcome my trials. Blessed be the Lord forever
Lord, I don't understand what you are doing but I trust that you have not only my interest but my BEST interests at heart!
I really love this teaching! It's something I need to practice. I've struggled with illness and not being able to work for the last 15 years. I am thankful to be alive today. I'm thankful I can walk and talk with ease. I'm thankful for every breath. Life itself is a gift from God.
I have so much to learn, as I just found out something about myself yesterday that I really never "GOT" before, but now I have, and I am over 70. ..and I am so grateful that I did find this out, as now with God's grace and His wisdom and direction, His help I will be able to change and grow in a new way, His way., I almost didn't want to write this out, but I do have so much more to learn.,..and I thank Him, I really need to rest more and listen to Him and my husband.
Amen! Lord, thank You that You are my sufficiency, and You supply all my needs in all circumstances. Therefore, I will rejoice and be glad, my hope and future is in You!
This is something I didn't want to hear right now. Instead of a soft heart; because of my trials and tribulations, I have a hard heart now. Just to let you know.
