It is difficult to be thankful when we are going through trials, but we must remember God is there in the midst of them.  He is showing his power, presence, grace, mercy and love in each situation.  We just need to open our hearts and eyes to see Him in all His glory.  We must make a choice to live a life of gratitude and be joyful even in the difficult times, remembering that what we are going through is covered in God’s mercy and grace.  Only then will we have peace and hope in the midst of the storm.
It’s time for me to share the next five of my One Thousand Gifts, inspired by Ann Voskamp’s book One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are:

11.  Crashing waves
12. Blanketing blizzards of white
13. Battleships on the sea
14. A mighty, protective fortress
15. A beacon of hope, our light in the darkest night
I pray that you are able to see past your trials and into the loving eyes of your Heavenly Father, that you will feel His grace, love and mercy as He carries you through to the other side.

  1. It is difficult sometimes Mandy, but God's word and His Spirit helps us to remember that He is with us and for us even in the midst of the trials.
    Thanks for a great reminder.
    Have a blessed day!
