“All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.” – 2 Corinthians 4:15
There will be always something that isn’t the way it should be. Until Christ returns, this life and in-between that we live in, there will always be something we want that somebody else has. There will always be a thirst, an insufficiency, and a lack unless you get to a place where you can walk by faith and be at peace that sometimes a beautiful picture can have tiles missing from it. You have to look at your own life and realized while it isn’t perfect, it’s great. When you say that, all of heaven just spills over into your life. Saying thank you isn’t easy: it requires courage as you face the hardship of life. You have to say I am still glad and I trust God, and you can.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, please help me to realize that although this life is messy, it is good.
REFLECTION: Do you have a hard time being thankful for the mess?
