Worship leader Pat Barrett, author of songs like “Good Good Father”, “Build My Life” and “The Way (New Horizon)” offers encouragement when life does go like you planned.
?? Regardless of what it is, when things are going good and easy in my life, I say “Thank you, God.” I let those things lead me in the faith. When things are difficult and unexpected and life throws the twists and turns it always does I use those opportunities to say, “Thank you, God, that these things happening my life, even though I don’t like them, are helping lead me into more faith and trust in you.”
There aren’t any easy answers and there aren’t always any answers for some circumstances, but there is always the opportunity to decide what we do with the moment that we have.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (NLT)
“Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus”
