“In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  (NASB)

 1 Thessalonians 5:18

There are times in our lives when things just don’t line up the way we think they should and yet we are told in all circumstances, all situations, we are to give thanks.  What with that?  I have found that giving thanks gets me back into right focus.  It switches my thinking more on God and less on myself.  And through this thanks I am more able to release the circumstances onto Him where He says, “Come unto Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden,

and I will give you rest.”  Matthew 11:28 (NASB)
