Sing With Thanksgiving

Sing... to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the
Father for everything. Eph 5:19-20

In everything give thanks for this is the will of God
in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thes 5:18

No matter the source of the evil confronting you, if you 
are in Christ and thereby completely surrounded by 
Him, you must realize that it has first passed through 
Him before coming to you. Because of this, you can 
thank Him for everything that comes your way. This 
does not mean thanking Him for the sin that 
accompanies evil, but offering thanks for what He will 
bring out of it and through it. May God make our life 
one of continual thanksgiving and praise, so He will 
then make everything a blessing. CHP

Many people owe the grandeur of their lives to their
tremendous difficulties. Charles H Spurgeon

Reader, when you look into the stories of the great men
and women in former centuries, you will find immense
issues that kept them trusting in God. Blindness, chronic
illness, loss of family members, old age, did not prevent
the hymns, sermons, books from being written. In fact I
feel that their tremendous difficulties only deepened the

Father, I know the truth of this message, that nothing can
enter our lives without first coming through You. May I
pause and thank you in every situation this day.
