Having trouble finding something to be thankful for this season? Here’s an idea.
Think back! What were the big struggles in your life, in your marriage, in your family, at work, in the neighborhood a year ago, five years ago, ten years ago? What loomed so large you never thought you’d get over it? What were you and your spouse fighting about? What worried you so much you couldn’t sleep? Chances are, whatever those problems were, they’re gone. They might even look a little smaller now, in hindsight. Or maybe you can see now how much you learned through them. How God shaped you. How he’s healing you.
If today seems dark and dreary, try thinking back. You’ll likely see some beautiful beams of light.
