Ephesians 5:20 “…[G]iving thanks always and for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.”
In some of my jobs, I have traveled extensively.  I remember one day: I was struggling to give thanks and praise, due to my airplane being delayed and being an eyelash away from being diverted to another airport 800 miles away.  Then a funny thing happened.  I began talking to the gentleman sitting next to me.  It turned out he was a strong Christian.  This proved to be important because we both ended up in prayer and agreed to ask God to stop the severe turbulence.  Suddenly, there was a break in the storm, and we were able to land without a problem.  The wind had stopped – just as Jesus had promised when He said “we” would do as He did and more.  I realized, then, why Jesus wants us to give Him thanks in all things.  Without the problem, I wouldn’t have met my new friend or seen God’s blessings in action.
I praise You Jesus and give You thanks for all things!

When have you praised God for your trials?  How has that praise changed your life?  How can praise be an important part of your daily life? remember one day: I was struggling to give thanks and praise, due to my airplane being delayed and being an eyelash away from being diverted to another airport 800 miles away.  Then a funny thing happened.  I began talking to the gentleman sitting next to me.  It turned out he was a strong Christian.  This proved to be important because we both ended up in prayer and agreed to ask God to stop the severe turbulence.  Suddenly, there was a break in the storm, and we were able to land without a problem.  The wind had stopped – just as Jesus had promised when He said “we” would do as He did and more.  I realized, then, why Jesus wants us to give Him thanks in all things.  Without the problem, I wouldn’t have met my new friend or seen God’s blessings in action.
