1 Chronicle 16:34
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
One attitude we all must possess is that of gratitude/thanksgiving. In everything, we must give thanks to the Lord for He is good and His love endures forever.
In 2012, I applied for a project, a few months later I watched the president of the country on TV as he hosted the successful candidates with a dinner. I was so disappointed as I had much expectation and dreamt of being chosen.
I prayed to God stating my frustration and disappointment and as I prayed, i found myself praising and dancing; the frustration had gone and a spirit of thanksgiving had taken over. After dancing for some good length of time, an email came into my phone behold I had been chosen, I was so overwhelmed with joy and praised God all the more.
Dear friend, your story might not end the way mine did, but one thing is certain; God is in control of everything, nothing happens without His permission. So, in everything learn to praise Him.
