Be Thankful In All Circumstances

A few weeks ago my little sister was memorizing this verse,

give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5:18

Since we homeschool together, as in the same room, I couldn't help but over hear her going over her verse several times a week. She has memorized it and now, so have I. 

It wasn't until yesterday that I really thought about the verse and put it into practice. After I had finished reading the Bible last night I came to the computer to blog hop. I found the living room in a disarray. Building blocks were all over the place, storage bins and other miscellaneous toys were scattered on the floor. The evidence of a toddler at play was clear as day... even though it was night time already. I am the type of person who cannot sit down until every little thing is put in the right place, so imagine howI felt at the mess before me! I set out to hastily put things away and midway into the process Genesis' memory verse popped into my mind. 

give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

I began to recite the verse until my task was complete and in a jiffy I was finished. I began to mediate on how I am thankful for my little sister. I am thankful for her sweet words and her kind gestures, like when she brings me pretend yogurt during homeschool or gives me a sticker when she thinks I've done my work well. I am thankful for when she tells me she loves me and that I'm the best.

I realized that this is God's will for me right now. He has called me to be a good big sister to a little girl who is just too cute for words. He has called me to help her and watch out for her. He has called me to be her friend and I highly resolve to do and be just that!

I decided that, from yesterday and on, I was going to exercise thankfulness for all of God's blessings, even those in disguise.

"And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true,and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise." PhilIppians 4:8
