Beloved, thankfulness is the key to many of the doors you have been trying to shove open.
Quit grumbling and complaining, because things have not happened in the manner you have wanted. I ask you to be thankful, for my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are my ways your ways.
For some I have kept you from going the wrong way and ending up on the wrong path. For others, those relationships would have taken you away from me. I am your loving and kind Father and I only want the best for each one of you.
Be thankful today that I have my eye on you. Know that if I have shut one door for you, I will open an even better one and lead you into my very best for your life. Remember that all things work together for good for those who love me and are called according to my purposes.
(NIV) Philippians 2: 13-15
for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.
Do everything without grumbling or arguing,so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky
(NIV) Philippians 4:4-7
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
(NIV) 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
