The bills are overdue, the car is about to be repossessed, the children seem to be sick every other week, fatigue has set in, and it seems like there’s no end in sight. What do we do? One thing we can do is thank God.

From a natural perspective, it seems foolish to thank God because it seems like everything is going wrong. But from a spiritual perspective, it’s beneficial to thank God during tough seasons.

We’re not thanking God for problems. We’re thanking God while we’re going through the problems. We thank God for a healthy body to work to pay a portion of our bills. We thank God for the funds to pay for the bus if our car gets repossessed. Thank God the children don’t have a terminal disease. We thank God for His strength that got us through the day. If we can’t find anything to be thankful for, we can thank God for Jesus.

Our thankfulness in troubling situations changes our perspective. Instead of focusing on everything that’s wrong, it reminds us of all the good God has done in our lives.

So, in every season, be thankful.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
