Give Thanks (Regardless of Your Feelings)

Wednesday, March 05, 2014

“Thankfulness takes the sting out of adversity. 
That is why I have instructed you to give thanks for everything. 
There is an element of mystery in this transaction: 
You give Me thanks (regardless of your feelings), 
and I give you Joy (regardless of your circumstances).”

(c) Sarah Young
 Jesus Calling: Enjoying Peace in His Presence

An excellent way to cultivate thankfulness 
is in a gratitude journal or devotional journal.

Sarah Young has just released a new devotional journal.
It would make a great addition to your quiet time.

40 Day FREE Lent Reflection Guide from Jesus Calling

Tuesday, March 04, 2014


Though many things feel random and wrong, remember that I am sovereign over everything. I can fit everything into a pattern for good, but only to the extent that you trust Me. Every problem can teach you something, transforming you little by little into the masterpiece I created you to be. The very same problem can become a stumbling block over which you fall, if you react with distrust and defiance. The choice is up to you, and you will have to choose many times each day whether to trust Me or defy Me.

The best way to befriend your problems is to thank Me for them. This simple act opens your mind to the possibility of benefits flowing from your difficulties. You can even give persistent problems nicknames, helping you to approach them with familiarity rather than with dread. The next step is to introduce them to Me, enabling Me to embrace them in My loving Presence. I will not necessarily remove your problems, but My wisdom is sufficient to bring good out of every one of them.

Romans 8:28 (AMP) ; 1 Corinthians 1:23–24

Question: What problems will you thank Me for today? 
I am ready to bring good out of each one.
