Ask yourself a question, Am I only grateful to God when he does something that I welcome with open arms? Or do you forget about him when life is friendly towards you. Learning to be grateful no matter what the circumstance is always important and is only a job for the ones who are not faint at heart. One of the hardest things that we have to do as humans is love someone who has hurt you. It takes maturity to love pass pain and that goes for loving God too. Sometimes he might put certain hardships that seems unreasonable and the last thing we want to do is lift our hands and confess our undying love to him. I’m not asking you to do this willingly, start by praying and asking God to soften your heart towards his will. Because the mature christian struggles with submitting their own will to follow God’s. So, today, strive to show God just how much you love him and that you would love him even if he striped everything away. The truth of the matter is, if he did take everything away from us, his grace, mercy, and gift of salvation is sufficient. I love you and be encouraged!
