Ponder these questions after you listen to the message:  

  1. Why might thanking God in the midst of difficulty change our perspective?

  2. How does it make you feel to know that Jesus can be your source of strength and endurance?

  3. An invitation to grow in the knowledge of God:
    This week take 10 minutes each day and read a story in Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John and ask God to help you hear from him, what he wants to say to you through the passage. Then spend a minute or two showing him gratitude for how he relentlessly loves you.
