Sunday devotion - 1 Thessalonians Ch 5 v 16-18

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Sometimes, the trials and tribulations of life can get to us, from the small things to major traumas.  I don't believe this passage is telling us to give thanks for the bad things that happen to us, that would be very strange.

Rather, I think it's telling us to rejoice in the knowledge that God is with us in all circumstances, and will give us the strength we need to get through life's trials, and to come out the other side, and to give thanks to God for all that he does for us, and to always remember that He is with us in the bad times as well as the good.

Be blessed.
