Are you going through a tough time in your life’s journey and in your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ? Perhaps you feel like giving up? Or, maybe, you feel as if God doesn’t love you and has left you all alone. Are you in a valley of venom and despair, wandering in the wilderness of worry, anger, bitterness, animosity, and anxiety?
Are you wondering how you reached this place? What are you doing here? How do you get out? “Maybe I don’t want to get out!” is what you are thinking to yourself. Could it be that you like this pit of despair? Do you really want to get out? Do you want to be delivered?
The Apostle Paul encourages us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 that “In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.” Some often say, “Give thanks for all things,” but the Apostle Paul is very clear here.
