Give Thanks to God.

Give thanks to the Lord, call on His name; make known among the nations what He has done.

-1 Chronicles 16:8

Thanking God is what most people should do at all times. Thanking Him not just in times that we are abundantly blessed but thanking Him even in trying times.

It is a fact that we oftentimes extend and say our gratitude to God only in times that we are especially in the fullness of our happiness because we feel the presence of God in us is dominant only on those pleasant times. But what a great misconception. God is with us even in times of our extreme difficulties and tests. We may not feel His presence in the midst of our struggles because we tend to feel that the Lord is not with us, that we are facing the hardship alone but we are perfectly mistaken. He even lifts us in getting things done for us in order to survive and to face the test.

It is quite queer why we only give thanks to God in our happy state of living. Why we are not proud proclaiming His greatness at all times, on things that He has done for us.

We feel the extreme pain in life and through whatever, we should always give thanks to God.
