Thankful Thursday – Motivational Minute 427

It’s Thankful Thursday!!

Today’s Motivational Minute is… Be Thankful (even when all hell breaks loose!)


It’s Thankful Thursday!

As someone who has thirteen year old twin nieces and one who works very closely with teen girls, this post is very timely for me.

Why you might ask?

Yesterday a 13 year old girl who had been missing since Saturday or Sunday, was found dead behind the garage of a home in the city where I reside.  On the same day, another teen who had been missing for about two weeks was found alive, but had suffered much trauma.  In a world where are youth are not safe to be out in the streets until the lights come on anymore, is scary.  However, in spite of it all, God is clear that we are to give thanks in all things for this is the will of God in our lives.  It may not make sense to us but God knows all and sees all and we have to trust that there is purpose in everything we go through, even our pain.  It is said that for some people, their purpose was birthed out of their pain.  So on this day, take a moment to give thanks unto God not only for life and the safety of our children, but also give thanks to God for your pain.  Whether you choose to admit it or not, purpose can come from it.

Please keep both of these families in prayer during this time.

YOUR TURN… on this Thankful Thursday, tell me, how you stay thankful and grateful when hell breaks loose and everything hits the fan?

Here’s to you living life IN & ON Purpose…

    Didn’t read this until Saturday. I’m thankful & grateful to God for being with me as I mourn. I lost my husband suddenly in June. This is the absolutely the worse experience of my entire existence. I’m so glad that God allowed me to be with him during his final moments. I thank God for the 20 years relationship that we had, I thank God for our wonderful relationship, I thank God that my husband was saved. Before is passing we were in the middle of negotiating to purchase a franchise…I thank God for giving me the courage, will & finances to proceed. I cry daily but I laugh & smile too. Prayer life has INCREASED, relationship with God changed I’m thankful in spite of….


    • Wow! What a blessing to have been married for 20 years to someone. I’m sorry to hear about your husband’s death but glad that you had a wonderful marriage and that you have tons of great memories to carry you through each day. Thank you for sharing. I pray that God continues to strengthen you daily.
