“Give thanks in all circumstances for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
There are very few things in life that I have a passionate hatred for. One of them is infantile eczema. After going through an extreme case of it with 2 separate children, I could write a large list of reasons as to why and how this illness causes sheer misery for not only the baby but for those who are caring for him or her.
I could write that list….
1 Thessalonians 5:18 says to give thanks in ALL circumstances.
Infantile eczema is a cruddy cruddy circumstance….but God says to be thankful during it.
What am I thankful for? I am thankful for all the lessons I have learned while dealing with this:
*A new level of multitasking that includes holding down a baby with one hand so he doesn’t tear his face apart while changing another’s poopy diaper with the other hand.
*What really is important
*Did I mention strength?
I am sure there is probably a situation you are dealing with that might seem cruddy. God says to be thankful despite the circumstance. I challenge you to find reasons to be thankful in the situation today!
