“Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” I Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV
Seriously? I hope that when we die, our conversations with God will not be played back because mine will all say “seriously?” Maybe I’m just extremely carnal, but “ALL” circumstances….be joyful “ALWAYS”. Wow, seems like a lot to ask.
But I see that it’s God’s will for us…..His hope that we could come to a place in which we have a truly grateful heart and it doesn’t have to be FOR circumstances, but IN circumstances. I think I get it.
