Rosualdo is just an ordinary person with an extraordinary God, who wants to spread God’s words and love through writing articles and poems.
Giving thanks to God does not only exist in happiness, prosperity, and good times but also in suffering, adversity, and hard times.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:18 NIV)
Give thanks to God in the dark times of life,
for his light and support is always present and rife,
his faithfulness will go on to shield from the misery's knife,
and his love and words will give strength to conquer the strife.
Give thanks to God amid grief and suffering,
for if we hold on to him we can stand the fire of despairing,
we can survive the flow and surge of the agony's flooding,
and we can endure the storm's relentless beating.
Give thanks to God amid sickness and disease,
for if we keep our faith we can resist the pain and distress,
we can withstand the energy and power of the press,
and we can have healing, durability, and success.
Give thanks to God amid problems and adversity,
for if we do not lose hope we can beat the difficulty,
we can crush and break down the hardship's intensity,
and we can possess God's comforting prosperity.
Give thanks to God amid offense and injustice,
for if we remain in him we can forgive and stay in peace,
we can win and overthrow the transgression's stress,
and we can have God's just, fair, and consoling justice.
Give thanks to God amid his silence,
for he is utilizing and testing one's faith and confidence,
he is not resting in providing security and defense,
and he is working in ways we cannot grasp and sense.
