"Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Whatever happens, give thanks, because it is God's will in Christ Jesus that you do this."
1 Thessalonians 5:16 Gods Word Translation
This is wise instruction on how to live godly lives that are pleasing to the Lord. God wants us to be thankful for the good and the bad that comes our way. Our thankfulness in difficult situations shows that we trust Him to make something good out of every circumstance.
