The Apostle Paul in his wisdom wrote these precious words to the Thessalonians: in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV) And many of us at times find ourselves in derision concerning this text because some of the circumstances we are in seem so overwhelming. But here is where you must remind yourself of all the things God has brought you through so far and the fact that you are still here is a testimony in and of itself and a testament to God’s love for us through His Son. So instead of trying to be philosophical or seeing the glass half full, as it were. How about just being thankful for having a glass at all! Here is a simple prayer we hope will help you see clearer…

“Lord God, let me never forget all that you do for me on a daily basis. Sustain me with the hope of my salvation and the other countless blessings you provide with your continuous presence in my life. Lead me to live my life in testimony to your incredible blessings, that your love may be known and experienced by all those I serve, in Jesus’ name. Amen.” — Chaplain Rick Jones
