One thought on “Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks to God in EVERYTHING

  1. Here’s another quote for you, Paula, that fits with the verses on thanksgiving:
    “We see always what we are looking for, and if our mind has become trained to look for trouble and difficulty and all dark and dreary things, we find just what we seek. On the other hand, it is also possible to form the habit of looking always for beauty, for good, for reasons for thanksgiving and joy. Here too, we shall find precisely what we seek.” (JR Miller, 1840)
    It’s harder to look for reasons for thanksgiving and joy when you are in pain, but they are still there to be seen, especially when you are looking at your Savior who loves you! May God make his many blessings obvious to you – I know you are looking for them. Love, Nita
