“In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus to you-ward” (I Thessalonians 5:18). There are many reasons to complain. Situations can be depressing, if we let them. One key way to overcome feeling overwhelmed is to condition our thoughts.
Thankful thoughts do not erase tough reality, but they sure help us a lot in the middle of it. Philippians 4:8 states, “Finally, brothers [and sisters], whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
In other words, think thankful thoughts,
Grace & peace, Dr. Antipas
