One of the last things Paul writes is, "Whatever happens, keep thanking God because of Jesus Christ. This is what God wants you to do" (1 Thessalonians 5:18, CEV).

I have a very hard time being thankful when things aren't going my way.

The key to thankfulness is focusing on what's most important: Jesus Christ's sacrifice for my sins. Everything else is peripheral.

Lord, please remind me the next time I stress out about family and work responsibilities that what's most important is already taken care of. Then I will be joyful.

As I develop this habit, give me more courage to share this joy with others.
