Sorrowful to Thankful


“Devote yourselves to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.”
Colossians 4:2

Janet’s son was brutally murdered but she turned to God to handle such a painful loss.

Sometime afterwards Janet spoke with a grieving mother in a similar ordeal.

But that woman was vengeful, bitter and angry.

Yes, both mothers suffer from the pain of loss.

But Janet’s attitude reflects a strong faith in God.

Her daily discouragement-fighter is to thank God.

She prays,

Thank you, God, that you comfort me through your Word.
When my heart longs to have my son again, You comfort me
I am so, so grateful.”

The Bible says,

Devote yourselves to (God in) prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.”  Colossians 4:2

Dear one, that’s the best way to meet your darkest trials……Faith-On.
