It is very easy to be thankful when everything is going great. What about when your life is in shambles? The Bible commands us to give thanks in all circumstances. "Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your face develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." (James 1:2-4).
"Let us rise and be thankful,
for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little,
and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick,
and if we got sick, at least we didn't die;
so, let us all be thankful.
