Thanks

Part of learning to deal with a chronic illness is learning to give thanks.

Today’s Bible Verse:

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV), “In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

What the Verse Means:

The verse reminds us that Christians should not only pray to God but also give thanks to Him. We should thank him for everything, in every circumstance, in joy as well as in sorrow.

Praying Using the Verse:

  1. Heavenly Father, help us always show gratitude to family and friends who help and support us as we battle our chronic illness.
  2. Lord Jesus, help us to praise God daily for who He is and for His love and care for our loved one (or yourself) confronting the chronic illness.
  3. God Almighty, we thank you for a loving church and Bible fellowship class and our brothers and sisters-in-Christ who help and support us.
  4. We give thanks for the good medical care and counsel.
