“Jesus’s eyes were on his future joy. He got through the cross by not focusing on the cross but on the promised joy that would result from it. That’s where God wants your eyes: on the future joy he has promised you.”
~ Jon Bloom
On today’s podcast, we’re talking about what it looks like to cultivate a heart of thankfulness in the midst of difficult situations. Do you ever find yourself having “gospel amnesia”? Rick Thomas reminds me we all have it as Christians from time to time. Gospel Amnesia is when I can find myself forgetting what the Lord has done for me at the Cross and I find myself sinfully complaining about difficult life situations. Come to listen in as we learn how with the help of the Lord we can look beyond our circumstances to the God who controls our circumstances.
“An evidence that our will has been broken is that we begin to thank God for that which once seemed so bitter, knowing that His will is good and that, in His time and in His way, He is able to make the most bitter waters sweet.”
~ Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth
