Sometimes to give thanks in every situation in our lives is very difficult. When our bodies are wracked by pain, or we have just learned that we are sick and there’s no cure, or we have lost our job, or a marriage or cherished relationship has been broken, we don’t feel grateful. But we can learn to thank God because He gives us strength when we feel weak. That is why apostle Paul could say in 2 Cor. 12:10, “I take pleasure in infirmities…in distress for Christ’s sake.” And as believers we can be grateful that through such experiences God is accomplishing what is best for us. Even through suffering God is working for our good.
As we surrender ourselves to the Lord remember that He is working in everything to accomplish our ultimate good, we can thank Him even when we are pierced by “thorns.”
