November Gratitude Stone 2 In Everything
1 Thess 5:18 Give thanks in everything!
This ebenezer is not always practiced, but I am working on it. Â I often find myself ungrateful for some of the hassles and losses in my life. I don’t want to say thank you when I feel there is an injustice or when I suffer. Â And yet, I think Paul wants us to learn to be grateful in the middle of every day living. Â If we only give thanks “after” we get through something, then we are still the central focus of our own lives; Â it does not require much faith to trace the hand of God with the benefit of hindsight. However, it takes faith to accept oneâ€™s lot with gratitude in the midst of circumstances.
I thank you for your provision today in finding me a place to live and that I did not go hungry. Â I even had a choice in what I wear and eat. Â Further I have hot water and clean skin.Â
