Choosing Thankfulness

In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.” 1 Peter 1:6

Overnight, Dawn Hall was forced to become the financial provider for her family.
Her first task was to find a way to pay for her husband’s experimental cancer treatments.
Surgery could not remove all his cancerous brain tumors.

Oh, dear one, Satan tries to rob us of our joy in Christ when we face tough trials.
But Dawn found solace in meditating on God’s Word and praying.
She released her tears and frustrations to God.
And using Dawn’s love of cooking, God opened the door for her to sell cookbooks.
Through it all, God blessed and grew her cooking career and speaking ministry.
Dawn says that

thankfulness is an attitude we choose to have. It’s not based on what we have or where we are in life.

Yes, friend, as you face life’s challenges, choose thankfulness.  It’s a choice with no regrets.
