What I’m about to post will look foolish and maybe even a bit peculiar to the people who don’t have a relationship with Jesus. You might even call me foolish.

in debt blues 2I thank God for the trials and sufferings I go through!

It’s rare to hear someone thank God for not having everyday filled with joy. It’s rare to hear someone thank God for not being rich or having enough money to pay the bills. It’s rare to hear someone thank God for the people who try hurt them by lying and doing intentional things to stop their progress.

On this 6th Day of Thanks, I hope you all join me in thanking God for all of what we had to endure since last Thanksgiving.

Romans 5:3-4 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

We know that when we suffer it will produce of a spirit of persistence, knowing what awaits us in the end. And during these trials and sufferings, our character is developed to mirror the character of Jesus Christ, which makes us Christ-like (Christian). And becoming Christ-like lends us the power to draw others to our Savior, through love, caring and sharing. And while we’re doing all this loving, caring and sharing we develop hope. We hope for the day when we all will be able to rest in the peace of the Kingdom of God, to be ruled by the most wonderful King to ever grace this world with His presence.
