Sunday Verse

Ephesians 5:19-20

speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

I wanted to bold and underline the 'always giving thanks to God the Father for everything'.  I'll also add that we should always give thanks even when things aren't going our way.  It's easy to praise Him with the skies are sunny and we are "fat and happy", but the times we really need to lift His name up is on those dark and gloomy days or when you're just having an overall bad day.  It's amazing how petty we can be and how we act sometimes.  It's on those bad days I'm reminded to continue to praise God no matter what.  The ska bad The O.C. Supertones summed up all of this perfectly in their song "Jury Duty"...

5 am on tuesday
Why am I up so early
Drive out to santa ana ’cause I’ve got jury duty
No breakfast short tempered
And I cut my
head shaving
Ten miles out I hit traffic
Some days just aren’t worth saving

You know I haven’t had the best of days
But I want to stop and thank you anyway

At the courthouse I waited
And waited then I waited
At lunchtime my car stalled out
I couldn’t get it started
Had a book by C.S. Lewis
I finished the last page and
Slept on my desk for three hours
Just like my high school days

Cuz every single moment whether sleeping or awake
Is your creation
And what you’ve made is good
I don’t always thank you for the rough days and
The hard times in my life
Even though I should

Got home and decided I’d be in a bad mood
My shy and quiet wife said she didn’t like my attitude
Got a call from my mother
Forgot my sister’s birthday
I’m a lousy older brother safe to say I’ve had a bad day
