How?Even in hardship,badtimes did you mention any thank you Lord for it? Oh...i know can't possible to some people,to say thank you for the problems Lord... If you givves thanks to it,did you observe that less in negative thought,and bad attitude or worse...? Responding to it in the same bad ways,will worse..Sometimes we dont remember God,but the problems...

Yes, I have just recently been thankful for Lord for I have just experienced this evening. I did not know if it was a new problem or a disaster, you would my new opinion the tittle " He was a reckless once " In that discussion, you will know exactly what I felt just recently. I was thankful for my Lord that my laptop was not exploded. I didn't know if he put my laptop into the bag while my laptop is still on position. When I want to join myLot, I directly grab my laptop and knew it was so hot and seemed to explode. I haven't paid full the laptop and I was very sad to know why my laptop was put into it's suitcase while it is still on.

I am personally guilty of this,having my mind focused on the problems more. One realization though, that God is always there no matter what phase you're in. Its a natural reaction to make your problems be problems, but along the way, God will surely remind you that He is around and that you must surrender you're everything to Him.

We must thank God for everything that happen to us whether good or bad.Surely God has best reasons for giving us problems.Maybe He wants us to be stronger, or He wants us to learn a lesson or He wants to protect us from worst things.It seems hard to be grateful when you are angry,sad and frustrated but as soon as we will give our full trust in God, it would be easier to thank Him for everything,knowing that He knows what's best for us.

Yes, I have learned to thank the Lord for my bad times as well as my good times. Because God allows us to go through the tough times so that we can be stronger in faith, and put our trust in Him and to know that it's Him that we need in our lives. And to look to Him to direct our paths and give us peace through the storms of life.

At some point, I did thank God for all the problems but it didn't really come primarily. The feeling of gratefulness came after the 'storm'. We don't really realize it but bad times actually makes us stronger and better. I personally know of someone whose mother had stroke, and her baby has some congenital defect-- born at 7 months or earlier if I'm not mistaken, yet she still says her thank yous to Him and she even asks for more. She's been through a lot and I see her as an inspiration.

Problems are lessons and challenges that sharpen our minds, motivate us to focus and think of solutions and make us grow in knowledge, strength, character and faith. These are gifts that we need to be thankful to the Lord for. Without problems, we won't be able to see and appreciate the value of joy. Life would be boring.

Yes. I thanked God for some problems he gave me. But it seldom happens. I usually thank God when I don't have problems. But I also realize that without problems, we'll not be happier and more contented in our life. You'll ask why. Because after we solve a big problem, we feel happy and contented. We feel more satisfied with our life. We are learning from our problems and these problems help us to be stronger and more matured. Problems are gifts that we need to treasure. After problems, there is happiness. Problems are sources of happines. Do you agree with me, befrindwithme26?
