Sometimes it’s difficult to smile and thank God when something is not going right in our lives. It’s hard to pretend that you’re happy when you are broke, jobless, lost, and broken-hearted. Reality is, we only know and appreciate His goodness when things are going our way. It’s not easy to thank Him when the road gets bumpy and you don’t understand what’s happening. But when the storm is over, you’ll realize that it was Him who helped you get through it all.
Thank God even when a friend leaves because he wants you to know that He is enough
Thank God even when you didn’t get the promotion maybe because He wants you to improve or a better job is waiting for you
Thank God even when you’re rejected, remember that the world rejected Him first
Thank God even when you’re broken-hearted because He is preparing you for the right one and the right one for you
Thank God even when you lost someone because He wants to remind you that nothing in life is permanent
Thank God even for the goodbyes because He wants you to start over again
Thank God for the failures because He wants you to understand the true meaning of success
Thank God even when you’re family is broken because He wants you to know that you are a child of a King
Thank God even for the broken promises for He restores everything
Thank God even for the people who hate you because you don’t need to find your worth in them
Thank God even for the tears because He wants you to experience pure joy
Thank God even when its dark for He is the light
Thank God even when you don’t understand why you’re hurting because He wants you to trust in Him
Thank God even for the sorry you didn’t get because He wants you to experience the joy of forgiveness
Thank God even when things are unfair because He is the Almighty judge
Thank God even when you’re hurting because there are things you need to learn the hard way
Thank God even when you think nothing good is happening for He makes beauty from ashes
Thank God even when it’s hard—-most especially when it’s hard.
Life isn’t always fair but God is an all-knowing god who knows even the smallest details of our lives. He knows what you need and when you exactly need it. So trust, let go, and believe that everything happens for a reason.
