1 Thessalonians 5:17,18 - "Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you"
During this Thanksgiving season, K-Love Radio has been giving listeners an opportunity to share on the air what they are thankful for. I heard a great story last week after I has just dropped my wife off at work. You see, she missed a step coming down the stairs a couple of weeks ago and broke a bone in her "driving foot". Hence, I have become her temporary designated driver.
I was getting a bit annoyed at all the driving back and forth…until I heard the story from a woman that said, "I'm calling in today to give thanks for my clogged drain". Huh? It really got my attention! She went on to say that for two years she was homeless. During that time, she declared 2 Samuel 7:1-7, that "no longer will you move from place to place but the Lord will build you your own house". And He sure did, she now had a home of her own.
That's a godly perspective folks! In everything she gave thanks. When she was homeless, when she was standing on the Word of God, and when she had her own home, clogged drain and all!
