Today is Canadian Thanksgiving.
Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Notice this verse doesn't say give thanks when good things happen? It says give thanks in ALL circumstances.
So if your baby's diaper had exploded and you have a poopy mess to clean up (this has happend quite a few times here lately), give thanks that you have this child, give thank for wet wipes, give thanks for having more than enough clothes to change your sweetie into.
If your family is sick right now (as so many families are) give thanks that they have soft beds and warm blankets to rest in, give thanks for medication to ease their symptoms, give thanks for flush toilets.
I am so thankful that I am a Canadian. I am a citizen of one of the wealthiest countries in the world. My God provides me with what I need and beyond.
