You may be a victim of domestic violence.  You might hold some deep dark secret that would condemn you if the world knew about it.  You may be in the throes of addiction.  Why on earth would you thank God?  Your life isn’t worth a nickel and God wants you to thank Him?

There is so much pain and sorrow in our world.  Many are at the ends of their rope because of it.  There are times when depression leads to suicide.  It may seem easier to just end it all when we can’t cope any longer.  Christians are being persecuted on a daily basis – not only in far off lands, but right here in the USA.  We are confronted with illness and even death – financial loss – indecision, hopelessness and despair.

God is worthy of our praise no matter what our circumstances.  He doesn’t cause our suffering – He is the One who relieves it.  He doesn’t kick us when we’re down – He lifts us out of the pit and carries us through adversity.  His love is so great that He laid down His life for us and promises perfection in eternity – no more tears or sorrow – no more pain.

Give thanks to Him in all circumstances – not because it is required of us, but because He is worthy of our gratitude.  He is our Heavenly Father who has only our best interests in mind.  He is the Son who showed us how to live and freely gave us forgiveness of all our sins.  He is the Holy Spirit who lives in us and gives us encouragement, faith, peace and zeal for God.

Give thanks to Him today and every day – in good times and in bad.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
