Joyce Meyer: Thankful in the Midst of Suffering...

The Bible encourages us to always be thankful. That's easy when God answers prayer  & delivers us from problems. But it isn't always easy when things go wrong. So how can we remain thankful in the midst of suffering?

We have TWO choices to make. The first is to praise God in spite of what's going on in our lives, Or another way to say that is, in the midst of our troubles & hardships, we can rejoice over the things that are not wrong in our lives.

The second choice is to ask, "God what can I learn from this? What do You want to teach me through this so that may be closer to You & rejoice more fully in Your goodness?" Those are not easy questions, & the answers are often hard to hear.

Sometimes we can only grasp the important lessons in our lives when we go through difficult times. Thank God that the hard times will lead you to better things.
