I got several ideas for my Sunday series. One was spiritual, one was soulful, and then I came up with Scripture Sunday.

Today I’m choosing Scripture Sunday and I want to share one of my favorite scriptures. It’s from I Thessalonians 5: 16-18

16 Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

This verse really speaks to me when I read it or hear it.

I still remember the morning in Sunday school when we read that passage and one word really struck me. “In”.

It doesn’t say give thanks FOR all circumstances. It says IN.

I see that as telling us we don’t have to be thankful for the rough times we are going through, but we can find ways to be thankful in them.

What’s your favorite scripture?
