Motivate Me Monday-Thankful in All Circumstances

Fifth Street Palace
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.

What's your motivation this week?  Link up with your own MMM post!

Loved your heart today my friend. We've often thought of moving to Canada just to escape what's happening here in America but I guess every country has it's problems. We used to go to PEI when I was a kid. It's beautiful!
Hugs to you!

Amen to all of those. Sometimes in the midst it is hard to find things to be thankful for...but there is always something. Great post and happy Thanksgiving.
