1 Thessalonians 5:12-24

“All circumstances,” is so broad a term. It includes when we sit with an ailing loved one, when we stand at a graveside, and when life’s hardships seem to overwhelm. Praying does not always come easy. During life’s troubles we must remember that calling to God in our pain, our doubt, our fear, and our anger is a form of trust.

It is also a form of thankfulness that is expressed in the very act of turning to God with our raw honestly. When we trust God enough to say all the things we truly feel, we are reaching out in our pain because there is someone we know we can turn to when there is no one else. When we are hurting we turn to God with our true feelings and find that we are embraced by God and comforted. This act of going to God with our doubt, our fear, our hurt, shows not only faithfulness but our thankfulness in a God who knows, understands, and loves us just the same.
