It is true that we go true challenges while travelling through the journey of live, from unemployment, marital, health down to security issues and so on. The truth is that all these challenges are not enough reasons why we shouldn’t thank God.
Challenges are not meant for your down fall but rather for your promotion. Gods plan for everyone is good and doesn’t add any sorrow.
The blessings of the Lord make a person rich and hard no sorrow
It would amaze you on how much things God does for you and I on a second bases when God opens our eyes. The things that God does for us are countless and numerous and money can’t buy them. God is pleased when we thank him in every situation and this sets him in motion to do more for us.
18 .. give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
You are complaining saying by now at the age of 35 as a female you ought to have married because your mates are already rounding up child bearing in their husbands house. Sister/ brother thank God atleast for God allowing you to meet the qualifications to apply for husband or wife. This is because a person that is insane or mentally unstable can not be searching for a spouse nobody will go for him/her. Therefore, that you are sane at 35year old demands of you to say a big “Thank you” to God.
Are you the type that complains of not having plenty to eat? Have you thanked God for the ability to eat the little you have? Remember that some have food that cannot eat. Some have golden bed yet cannot sleep. This reminds me of a friend of mine some year back that I once viewed as strong and healthy to the best of my knowledge till the day I heard that he was admitted in the hospital diagnosed of kidney problem.
Things got worse for him that he was advised by doctors on the type of food or fluid that should enter his mouth. He was denied from eating his best foods and drinks. His condition got worse to a point that he was advised by doctors managing his health conditions not to drink more than 5 capcover of 60cl bottle of water a day. Can you imagine that? I almost cried when I heard this, in fact I actually cried.
Now take a look at you, you drink water without being measured and you eat that little food in your possession with peace of mind if only you know the meaning of this no one will force you to thank God.
Do not wait till when what you enjoy is taken from you that you start to value it. Let us learn to thank God for where we are because where we are that means nothing to us is the major prayer points of some people.
Whoever has ( thanks giving to God ) will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have ( thanks giving to God ) even what they have will be taken from them.
The air you breath freely without any cost is being paid for by some people everyday in the hospitals. You can walk, talk,see,hear (I mean all the organs ) and all your systems are working perfectly these call for some appreciations to God.
In case you feel nothing is working in your life you still own God thanks. Why? It is because God is keeping you alive right now giving you a privilege to have HOPE and a FUTURE.
HOW TO CONNECT TO GOD
The simple way to connect to God isjust to ask jesus to come into your life and be the lord and saviour of your life forever, follow and believe in him.
Jesus told him ‘ I am the way-
Yes, and the truth and the life. No one can GET to the father except by means of me (JESUS ).
Let not your heart be troubled. You are trust in God now trust in me ( JESUS ).
Anyone that is hating me ( JESUS )
is hating the father (GOD)
Colossian 2: 10
So you have everything when you have christ and you are filled with GOD through your union with CHRIST. He is the highest RULER, with authority over every other power.
