Ephesians 5:20 KJV - Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
In everything give thanks, Lord?
Even the pain, the hardships, the heartaches?
It is easy to give thanks for the good things:
The health, the comforts Thou hast blessed me with.
But Thou alone, can make me thankful
For trials that try my faith.
As Paul wrote, "I have learned in whatsoever
My state, to therewith be content." (Philippians 4:12)
As he so learned by his trials, so I must learn.
Only by thy grace, can I learn to give thanks
For all things.
Thank Thee, Lord, for grace to do so.
