Thankfulness: Even When It Hurts

Written bySue Lutz

Is God asking too much when he calls us to be thankful even in the midst of our trials?

Susan Lutz helps us see that being thankful does not mean ignoring painful realities. It means bringing our trials to a God who loves us and sent his Son to be our Savior.

What results from a thankful heart?

  • A stronger relationship with God
  • Protection from life’s spiritual hazards
  • Intimate connection and communication with the Heavenly Father

Lutz explains how believers in Christ have a reason to be thankful that they never had before: Jesus removes the barrier of sin and brings them into a relationship with God.
