Always rejoice. Pray constantly. Give thanks in all circumstances.
(1 Thessalonians 5:16-18; NIV).
I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times. I, the Lord, am the one who does these things (Isaiah 45:7, NLT).
Thank you, God, for all your gifts –
The ‘good’ ones, and the ‘bad’,
The gifts that make my heart rejoice;
The gifts which make me sad;
The gifts that bring me pleasure,
And the gifts which bring me pain –
For you bring good from everything
For those who love your name.
Should we accept only good things from the hand of God, and never anything bad? (Job 2:10; NLT).
We know that God make everything work together for the good of those who love God (Romans 8:28; TIV).
