We should give thanks to God for everything.
“Give thanks in all circumstances.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
By giving thanks to God for everything it shows me how much I have been through and has shown me how much God brought in my life because of all the thing I have thanked him for.
By going through my moms divorce I can give thanks to God for showing me how much strength a child needs, or a family needs during such a horrible event. It has shown me how much it takes of a child, how much the child has to grow up, not because of being alone, but having to be there for the parent.
A divorce is more than just the husband and wife. A divorce is something that affects everyone. Now-a-days people take a marriage for granted and if it is not “meant to be” then they just trash it and get another one. Going through such a horrible event I, myself, have seen how much it tears people apart even though they don’t talk about it.
Friends can try to be there for one another, but if a friend has never been through the situation then one can not “relate”.
Going through this event has opened my eyes to what is real and what is not. Giving thanks that I was in that situation that I can help others overcome, and be that listening ear for once I was in their shoes wishing for someone to hear me.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and petition, wish thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
– Philippians 4:6
Be thankful for the rain as it brings out the flowers and makes everything so green.
Starting your day by being thankful can help lighten the load on your heart.
Happy Thankful Thursday!
