How can we be thankful now in the midst of so many hard things?
Our four-week series, Thanks in All Things, will explore how we can experience gratitude in both the ups and downs of life. When life brings us happy changes, it’s easy to be thankful. But in the hard changes, the kind that bring suffering and loneliness and despair and even death, gratitude often is the last thing on our minds. We may not be ready to give thanks for the hard seasons or the difficult trials, but can we move closer to gratitude in the midst of them? Can we see even a glimmer of God’s goodness in the midst of all that’s hard and heavy?
