Thanksgiving in the Hard Times

I found this article today I thought was worth sharing. In my last post, I talked about hard times. Those are the moments when rejoicing and giving thanks are farthest from our minds. We see nothing to be thankful for, nothing to rejoice about. However, after reading this article (which I will share with you momentarily), it reminded me of things to be thankful for in those moments. Since I’m posting, I thought I’d share a few verses about thankfulness anyway.

Heb. 12:28: “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,1 let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe”

Col. 4:2: “Devote yourselves to prayer,1 being watchful and thankful”

Col. 3:15: “Let the peace of Christ1 rule in your hearts, since as members of one body2 you were called to peace.3 And be thankful”
