Scripture that spoke to my heart today...

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

I used to always read this verse as "for everything" give thanks.....
Sometimes I'd think..."No God, I can't be thankful for this, it's too hard and I can't find any reason to be thankful for this!" I found it so interesting when it was one time pointed out to me that it actually says "in" and not "for". Big difference! It's kindof hard to be thankful for a certain trial that comes our way...but there does always seem to be something good that comes out of each trial that we CAN be thankful for! So now whenever I am struggling with something, I try to find something I can be thankful for in my trial. I try to see what good thing God is trying to teach me now. These lessons are hard to learn...but our God knows exactly what each of us need to learn and is so faithful to teach us in whatever way he needs to, to get our attention!

  1. Thanks for the reminder. It is hard to be thankful in everything; I need to work on it.
