Chew on this...

Rejoice always. Pray continually. Give thanks in all circumstances. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 It is the season of Thanksgiving, but what about “when you’re not really feeling all that thankful? When we’re really not feeling all that thankful, what if – in obedience – we thanked Him based on what we know to be true? That we thanked Him for who He is, and for the fact that His ways are higher than our ways. We thanked Him for His unwavering strength instead of our own shaky frailty. Thank God for writing such a personal, loving story of redemption for our lives – one that will make His glory shine in dark places. Thank Him for the blessings that can only be attributed to His goodness when they arrive in the form of miracles in the midst of trials. Thank Him for compassionate hearts and open doors to encourage others with our stories of God’s faithfulness in desperate times. Thank Him for the thorn in our side, that continually drives us to the cross, reminding us of our great need for a Savior! Thank you, God, for this gift of seeing your more clearly.” This is from Good Morning Girls devotional. Pray for a year round grateful heart. ~ Frances
