"Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." ESV
The Apostle Paul is telling us to be thankful all the time and for every thing. How can we do that when so many stressful and tragic things happen to us? Because, when we receive good things and positive times, our Lord has graciously poured out His blessings on us with no effort on our part. However, when we encounter bad things and negative times, our Lord graciously pours out His blessings and grace on us because we praise Him even in the storm.
Lord, teach us to be thankful all the time and for all things. Our thankfulness helps us remember how faithful and gracious You are to us. In Your great name we pray, Amen.
