“… Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
For me, focusing on the word “in” here adds deeper meaning to this verse. It means that no matter what I’m experiencing at any given moment – whether a good or bad situation – I can find something to thank God for. If I’m struggling, that can be a real challenge. So, I have to make the decision to look beyond my feelings to find the blessings. When I do, I always find at least one – which usually leads to more!
