It happens whether you’re ready or not. Life begins tanking. And the results are almost always the same – doubt, despair and depression. But as hard as it is, you still have to figure out how you’re going to deal with what’s going on in your life. So what if your first response would always be to do the very thing you least feel like doing – thanking God! Thanking God for loving you even when you don’t love yourself. Thanking God for holding you tight and never letting go. Thanking God for healing you in the ways you need most. Thanking God for giving you new life in the midst of your life that’s coming unraveled. Thanking God for transforming you into the person God dreams for you to be. And thanking God for making hope real. It may not make much sense. But it always makes a huge difference.
