Seeing The Good

“Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” - 1 Thessalonians 5:18 
I want you to take a moment and think of all of the good things happening in your life right now. Think about all the blessings that God has set upon you and how He has worked in your life.

Far too often, we don’t stop and think about all the good in our lives unless it is some special occasion. We wait to celebrate the end of a stage in our life, an accomplished goal, or a holiday like Thanksgiving.
But why wait? Why can’t we stop in the middle and see the good in our lives? Why can’t we look to see the good even in difficult times? Life is never ALL good or ALL bad. There are always things that we like and things we wish we could change, no matter what stage we are in.

But when we are in difficult circumstances, it can be harder to see the good. Today is that reminder. 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
God wants you to be grateful, even in the storm. Thank Him for all that He has blessed you with. I don’t specifically know what that is for you. For everyone, the blessings are different. But they are there no matter who you are.

Life will go a whole lot better if you choose to see the good even in bad situations. God is still working in your life. He will get you through the tough times. But as He does, don’t sit around pouting wishing that He would just upend everything at this moment.
Choose to see the good, and when you do, thank God for all that He has given you!
