Bible Text: "Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus." 1 Thessalonians 5:18

Life is not over because you have diabetes. Make the most of what you have, be grateful. Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot YESTERDAY, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.

The Christian can rejoice always because their joy isn’t based in circumstances, but in God.

Circumstances change, but God doesn’t.

Christians are to pray continually. Prayer is communication with God, and we can live each minute of the day in a constant, flowing, conversation with God. "Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it."

There is significant, important value in a time where we shut out all other distractions and focus on God in a time of closet prayer (Matthew 6:6). But there is also room - and great value - in every-moment-of-the-day fellowship with God.

We don’t give thanks for everything, but in everything. We recognize God’s sovereign hand is in charge, and not blind fate or chance. When joy and prayer are married their first born child is gratitude.
