It's so easy to thank God for the good things, but sometimes we need to thank Him for the bad things because through these we find our strength. Remember that there's a blessing in every lesson and not all unfortunate situations come as a punishment, but simply to help draw us closer to the Lord.
I'm thankful for all the situations that have brought me tears because through the tears I found my joy.
I'm thankful for the people who talked about me and for the ones who defended me because it helped me to see who was really for and against me.
I'm thankful for the problems that led me to my knees because I learned to pray my way through everything.
I'm thankful for the doors that were closed because it allowed God to open my eyes to better opportunities.
I'm thankful for the seeds of doubt that told me I couldn't do it because by reading God's word I've learned that I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.
I'm thankful for the situations that had me speechless because I learned if I hold my peace and let The Lord fight my battles victory shall be mine.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
