Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV 

God prepares us to be grateful. He helps us discover the gifts of His faithfulness. He opens our eyes and shows us the power of Jesus. He readies us to discover there is ALWAYS reason to be thankful for the blessing of His love. 

Sometimes, it’s hard to embrace a grateful frame of mind, when life takes twists and turns and moves us through moments that are difficult. But, in the wonder of our doubt, God reminds us to TRUST. He is the constant source of strength that keeps us going…He fills us with HOPE for tomorrow and provides PEACE for today, as we humble our hearts and find strength in His presence. 

When we hold tight to what is good, it becomes clearer that God is with us. And, when we absorb His WORD, we become aware of the power of His love. We are given wisdom to understand why we must put our faith in the One that deserves our praise. 

God will help us develop an attitude of gratitude. In the timing of His will, He will bless those who receive what He provides. God is great! He will give us peace and bless us with His faithfulness. Isn’t that reason enough to give thanks in every circumstance? We will never be without the power of His amazing love.

Dear God, Thank you for Your presence in our lives. Thank you for mercy and love. You cover us in grace and guide us where we learn to be patient in the timing of Your will. YOU reward us with HOPE, as we humbly trust in You. We will love You with ALL of our hearts and feel Your presence of peace. And, we will remember to gratefully begin our prayers in praise. Amen
