Inspired by . . . the secret of contentment.
Focusing on Thanksgiving as a Lifestyle, not just a holiday.
Learning to be thankful in all circumstances is not the same as giving God thanks
for cancer or some other terrible event.
God uses tragedies,
but His purposes are always for healing and wholeness, not for disease or destruction.
So being content and thankful in all circumstances means
seeing God's hand and provision even, or especially, in the midst of hard, or even terrible, situations.
The "secret" of contentment therefore is to focus on our faithful, merciful God
and the way He redeems the worst situations in our lives.
