There are always times when we find ourselves unable to understand why things happen. Death, divorce, sickness, accidents, catastrophes and even terrorism. When such things occur, 1 Thessalonians 5:18 is a wonderful reminder that “No matter what happens, always be thankful, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” God has a plan for each of us and He is always with us. A friend once told me that we have to live life going forward but it is in looking back that we will understand God’s plan for us. Cling to that promise and go forward in Faith.
PRAYER: Dear Father, it is so hard to be thankful during difficult times. I want to cling to you and give thanks for the great God you are. Amen.
