Be Thankful, Always! Something To Think About! January 17, 2012
I’m thankful when things go my way! I’m thankful for Robin, my kids and my friends! I’m thankful for being in the ministry! I’m thankful for my car that a brother in Christ is buying me! I’m thankful for people who support the ministry!
Some of you may know that Mimi was in a car wreak and her car was totaled. The lady admitted fault and gave us all the info concerning her insurance company which is AAA. We thought there would be no problem settling with them.
It has been a nightmare and AAA is the hardest company in the world to work with. As a matter of fact we’ve turned everything over to our insurance company, State Farm to take care of the settlement! Last week for two days my stomach was tied in a knot!
Today, as I was reading God’s Word our Lord showed me that I should have been thankful for that. You see, it’s real easy to be thankful when things are going our way!
John 12:28, Father, glorify thy name. Then came there a voice from heaven, saying, I have both glorified it, and will glorify it again.
Our Lords supreme desire is the glory of God. What a lesson this should be for us. We should not whimper and complain and ask God why He lets unpleasant things happen to us. With Christ, we should learn to say, “Father, through the unpleasant things that are happening, glorify yourself!”
It’s tough, but I can and you can do it!
