In All Things Give Thanks by Julie Arduini

When I write, anything from an email or a manuscript, I say a little prayer that God would give me the words.

The other day I was responding to an email and I asked for words that would be just for her this coming month.

The answer was a blessing that she would be able in all things to give thanks.

As I have moved on, that is the answer I’m hearing no matter what my prayer is.

In all things give thanks.

Like health situations.

In all things give thanks.

Like transitions.

In all things give thanks.

Like writing.

In all things give thanks.

Like pain and heartbreak.

In all things give thanks.

Like financial issues.

In all things give thanks.

Like the election.

In all things give thanks.

All things.

It’s hard.

Here’s the secret sauce, because I asked God how when everything feels so topsy-turvy crazy.

Know God, know peace.

No God, no peace.

In all things give thanks.
