God Said, “Everything”




What tops your gratitude list?


  • My family
  • My home
  • My salvation
  • My troubles

Troubles? Ha! You’d have to be crazy to be thankful for all the bad stuff that comes your way. Except . . .

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NASB)
In everything give thanks.

God could have said, “In every good thing, give thanks.” But he didn’t. He is quite clear, “everything.

So what trials go on your gratitude list—money troubles? Family problems?

Even politics?

Everything.bless grateful

  1. Without the troubles I wouldn’t have the perspective. It is a matter of being intentional about facing them, but once that’s done there is no need for resentment, and an open door to gratitude.

      I thought of you, Andrew, as I wrote this. Resentment and gratitude can’t fill the same cup. I’m glad you chose gratitude.
