On this day of Thanks, it is only fitting to do a SOAP on a verse of thanksgiving. We all need to realize that being thankful in all things is so important even if you don't think there is any reason to be thankful. In all tragedy, there is something good if you will only look hard. God is in everything and you can find Him if you will look.
O - All circumstances is the key here. This verse does not say to only be thankful when times are good. We are even told that this is what God Himself wants from us.
A - I will be and have been thankful in every circumstance. I will constantly look for God in all aspects of my life and what I do.
P - Lord, please always show me who you are in every circumstance of my life. Help me to see you at all times, good and bad. Help me to know that I have every reason to be thankful for all you do in my life. I am thankful that I can praise you regularly. Amen
