1st Thessalonians 5:18
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Does God expect a thank you for everything? What thankful words can we find when life is overwhelmingly confusing, tragic, or painful? Sometimes there are no words. But in the Bible, God does promise that He knows His plans for us; plans to prosper, not to harm but to give hope and a future.
Whatever your situation today, try giving thanks, not necessarily for the moment, but for the greater things He has in store.
