Say ‘Thank You’ When The Going Is Tough

How easy it is for us to thank God when everything is going well! Life seems to be moving on well-oiled wheels, as it were. But very few of us remember to say Thank You. When we are afflicted by pain and suffering, we seek God’s help in desperation. If we continue to suffer, we feels that he cannot hear us. We imagine that He doesn’t care! we berate Him for being indifferent to our suffering.

However, I am talking of a state beyond calling upon God- I am asking you to actually thank God for adversity, suffering and pain. The trouble with many of us is that we remember God with great alacrity in our misery- but the moment our problems are sorted out, we cease to think of Him. Thus, we have just used God; we have treated Him as if He were just a means to serve our end.
