“…Be thankful in all circumstances. This is what God wants from you in your life in union with Christ Jesus.”
When I hear this verse, it reminds me of an incident in The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. Corrie and her sister had been interned in a German concentration camp during
World War II. They were in a section of the camp that was heavily infested with fleas. So bad were the fleas, in fact, the guards refused to come in so they were spared their cruelty.
When Corrie complained about the fleas, her sister told her, “Corrie, thank God for the fleas.”
LORD HELP ME TO REALIZE AND BE THANKFUL THAT SOME OF THE FLEAS IN MY LIFE CAN BE BLESSINGS. AMEN.
