God doesn’t waste our pain and neither should we. He is working His purposes in and through your suffering. Take time to meditate on the wisdom and ways of God as He works out His perfect will through your suffering.
We must not only be a people who are thankful but a people who are thankful for the right reasons. When we celebrate, why do we celebrate? When we receive a blessing, how do we define blessing? What motivates our hearts to respond with gladness?
