It's the week of Thanksgiving and our thoughts turn to those that don't have the comforts we do. Things are far from perfect for us but this time of the year forces us to have some perspective. We are very grateful for the many things which we never worry about and often take for granted. We thank God for the little things and the big things and even for the hard things. As it says in Romans 5:3-5
" ...but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope. Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us."
Have you thanked God for your hard times? Life can be tough at times but God isn't letting it happen just so you suffer or so that you "get what you deserve". He wants to build perseverance, character, and hope in you.
God bless, enjoy your Thanksgiving!
