Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18, NIV.)
Are you giving thanks in every circumstance? This might seem like a stretch at first, especially when you are going through a season of difficulty. But notice today’s verse doesn’t say to give thanks “for” everything, it says give thanks “in” everything. In other words, no matter what’s going on, find something to be thankful for. Don’t just focus on what’s wrong in your life; focus on what God will do in your life.
When you are thankful, it opens the door for God to move on your behalf. That’s why it says “this is God’s will for you.” He wants you to be close to Him to receive His strength and power by giving thanks. That’s why we should always have the attitude that says, “God, in spite of what’s happened, I choose to be grateful. I may be sick, but Father, thank You for being my healer. Thank you for giving me great friends and family.” Or, “I may be struggling in my marriage, but God, thank You for being my restorer. Thank You for giving me another sunrise.” As you give thanks in everything, you will see God’s hand move mightily on your behalf, and you’ll come out of that difficulty better, stronger and wiser than before.

Florent, you’re from France, and Amberly, you’re from Australia. How did you both meet and why decide to travel together?
We met at work in Sydney, and still live here together. We soon realised that we shared the same passion for both photography and travel. Particularly of the landscape and nature variety. And have many more adventures planned in the near future.

In order to become the supreme adult, you must perform the seven wonders:
- Public speaking
- Not being afraid of teenagers
- Calling the doctor yourself
- Arguing without crying
- Having a normal sleep pattern
- Having an answer to the question ‘what do you want to do with your life?’

"I’m there, like when I drowned in the Red Sea of My blood for you.
And these hands that took holes will hold you.
And when I told you I would love you forever, I meant it
Don’t you see these rings in my hands? See we are married.
For better or for worse, through sickness and in health
Through faith and through questions
til death brings us closer, you are mine.
You are mine, and I am yours, I promise.”
