Be Thankful

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

Hello friends (smile) In the ebbs and flows of life, being thankful becomes easier when we realize just how blessed and fortunate we really are in whatever season we find ourself walking through.

It’s a beautiful thing to understand that everything happens for a reason and the most painful experiences brings growth. Things and stuff, and X, Y and Z challenges can happen to any of us.

Be thankful to keep walking through the challenge because it builds inner strength, spiritual fruit and deepens faith, and trust in God. (smile)

Be thankful to learn adapting and adjusting promotes a healthy attitude and leaning more on God during difficult times.

Be thankfulthat the past has no power unless we allowed it.

Be thankful to understand free will to choose remains an obstacle when dealing with others. Sometimes, they are not ready for the next step. Sometimes, we’re not. Be thankful to know the difference.

By faith, be blessed and thankful each day that God wakes us up. (smile)
