Being thankful can be difficult in good times.
Add in times of struggle, moments of challenge and the stresses of every day life and being thankful can be even more difficult.

“…give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” I Thessalonians 5:18
What if He is using these uncomfortable circumstances for something good in our lives?
