Health issues can be so heavy they topple us. Some health issues are a tough inconvenience, while others change the course of our lives. Being sick challenges our desire to give thanks to God.
While health issues can make it hard to be thankful, God has shown me ways to find gratitude. I can start with the fact the Jesus Christ died for my sins. His gift of salvation is easy to be thankful for.
2 Corinthians 12:9 gives us help in our weakness. “But he said to me, ‘My grace is enough for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ So then, I will boast most gladly about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may reside in me.”
Health issues cause physical weakness. When we lose what we are used to having, we are more likely to cry out to God for help. Then He shows us so much more to be thankful for.
God is so good.
