1 Thessalonians 5:18

In everything give thanks;
for THIS is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

If THIS is God's perfect will for me at this moment,
can I not thank Him for it?

If this is precisely where He knows I must be in order to know Him more fully and glorify Him with my life, how can I complain?

Do I really think I know my needs better than the all-knowing, all-loving Creator of the universe knows them?

Wow, this is exactly what I needed to hear today! God is in control and knows exactly what He is doing. I have faced some personal struggles lately -- it is amazing how God uses our trials to draw us closer to Him and reveal how desperately we need Him! We must trust Him. He is so faithful. Thank you for sharing this, Bethany.

By the way, who is APW?

I needed to hear that today!
Thank you Bethany for your witness through your words and your life; you and your family have been such an encouragement to me!

So true. Why do people say "I trust God", when they don't truly follow His word where it says we will be blessed if we do such and such. Too many times we pass up a blessing He is ready to hand us.

I must say, I am thankful for everything, for nothing comes apart from God! He is alive in me, and with Him being all I need, I have no reason to complain.
