Gratitude in all Circumstances?

Today is the final post of our #GratefulHeart Series and it’s over at SunSparkleShine!

This post … friends, no words. Marva shares with you from her heart. From the kind of place that’s difficult to share because it’s messy. But it’s real and it’s authentic. And it gives hope for when life hurts.

In Marva’s words:

Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

“Believe it or not, God’s goodness is not dependent on life’s circumstances. His goodness is constant, unchanging and predicable even (and especially) when life is not.

I started learning this lesson a few weeks ago when I sensed God’s protection during a scary situation. It left me wondering if the worse really did happen, would I still think God was good?

Well, guess what?

This week the worse happened.

And I struggled. I continue to struggle.

I mean, how can I give God thanks in the midst of pain?

Does God deserve my gratitude when He allowed this awful thing to happen?

Could I really give thanks in ALL circumstances?”

Can I really have gratitude in all circumstances? Even when my feelings tell me He doesn't deserve it? Here are 5 Scriptures that have given me comfort when life hurts.
