God shared through his servant Paul in a letter to people in Thessalonica to Truly this is special and elegant scripture as we can live it
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God… for you.
1 Thes 5:16-17.
I can remember earlier this year, a young lady reached out to share see was losing her home. Over the course of three years, family income steadily went down. In time, the mortgage went unpaid to keep food on the table. And now as foreclosure loomed, she still remembered to rejoice, pray and give thanks.
When we rejoice, pray and give thanks even in our troubles, is when God can grow us the most. Think of faith like exercise. When we work a certain muscle it can lift more, walk or run further. As we exercise our faith in God, the Lord can open more of that amazing grace to each and everyone of us.
As you take time to be with and give to others this Thanksgiving week, be mindful to rejoice with them all God is and has done for you.
Have a very blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving. Rejoice and give thanks.
See you next Sunday.
