Teachable Moments with Brianna Spicka
Director of Loveland Crisis Response Unit, and Enlighten Foundation Circle Society Member
Gratitude in the Midst of Crisis 2
Grateful in the midst of crisis because of what God does:
1. He gives strength so we can make it through hardships.
2. He provides what we need to rise above the negativity, discouragement, and bitterness that can grow in the midst of crisis, like the feet of deer running across the ground.
3. He enables us to triumph over that which would keep us from looking to God as the Source of all we need in these difficult times, like treading on the heights where other gods were placed.
Give thanks in all circumstances. (1 Thess. 5:18)
God is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. His character and abilities do not change. He continues to work on behalf of His people. Even in the midst of crisis, how can we not rejoice in our God? How can we not give Him thanks?
