Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in everything; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18
Is there someone in your life that no matter what their circumstances or heartaches may be, they thank Jesus in every moment? I have a few people like this in my life and they inspire my faith, sparking new levels of trust in our God and spurring me on further to thank Him, in everything.
This isn’t always easy for me. There are some days that are harder than others to fully rejoice in God’s goodness when everything around me is shouting pain.
BUT… God’s living Word tells us specifically that His faithfulness does not depend on my wisdom. In other words, God’s steadfast love and grace are ever-flowing upon us and no matter what our circumstances are, His love is abundant and perfect.
Let’s choose to be women who give thanks, no matter what is thrown our way. Let’s choose to be women who truly take God at His word. Let’s choose to be women who are actively rejoicing and thanking Jesus in everything. Let’s be the women who others look at and say, she gives gratitude no matter the cost. Her rejoicing in Jesus, despite her circumstances, gives me hope that I can be that woman, too. We can be these women, friends, because we serve a God that is good, in everything.
