The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
It is easy to be grateful when life works out the way we have planned, when things go our way, when we are loved and have others to love. But these past few months have put pressure one everyone in many new ways. Our plans haven’t worked out, things haven’t always gone our way, we see division almost everywhere we look. It can be overwhelming and we can easily forget that God is still in control.
God has not forgotten that we are his children and when we truly believe that EVERYTHING works together for our good, we can be grateful no matter what our circumstances might be.
This Friday we will review the Gratitude lesson and consider how well we are expressing our gratitude to God and those he has put on our lives to help us grow to be more like Jesus.
