No matter how good or bad you have it, wake up each day thankful for your life. Someone somewhere else is desperately fighting for theirs. Many of the things we take for granted, someone else is praying for. Be grateful for everything – even the crosses in your life. They are all a grace.
God will take your sufferings and bring some kind of good out of them, though you may never see the numerous effects of this grace in your lifetime. It may be that because of what you are going through someone else is praying more, loving more, or turning back to God. Offer everything up to God and thank him for the many blessings in your life. Be grateful. God loves you.
One thought on “Be Grateful for Everything . . .”
I am very grateful to God today. Everything is good. My problem is to stay grateful to God when things are not good. I look back on sad periods of my life when I gave up on God. When I needed Him the most! When I look back, my “bad/sad” periods ending up strengthening my faith and they brought me closer to God. : )
