Hello there and welcome!
For today this will be a really short post that is influenced by the phrase in the title.
Well I first heard this phrase from one podcast that I like so so much..(Jesus and Jollof) which y’all should already subscribe to btw and I was just like Wow!!
Anyway, since the moment I heard this it really stuck with me. I could not help but find it to be absolutely true and very relatable (speaking for myself here)..
It’s always way easier to be willing at the end of the year to give thanks for all the good things that have happened to us for instance.
When things are going on so well, we are so happy and we can afford to tell people “God is good! ” We are willing to even give Thanksgiving offerings (don’t get me wrong, this is a good thing to do) but when things aren’t going as well it’s not the same.
We feel that we’re alone. Heck our friends don’t even understand because they’re not in such positions. When they try to encourage us…we’re quick to be “easy for you to say since life is going great for you.. ” and it goes on and on.
So as this year comes to an end and we’re looking back at how things have played out for us let’s indeed shout aloud praises for the Yes-es we have been given in answer to our heart’s desires but let’s also learn to still trust even when we get the No-s.
