-Psalm 136:1 (NIV)
The tribal historian told us that this saying is not a saying that is used when things are going well. Rather, this saying is a reassurance when things are not going as well as we would hope. The historian shared a rhyme: "Giving thanks matters more, when it seems there is less to be thankful for." The Mohegan people embrace a good Creator as a way to hold onto hope and endure difficult times by being thankful.
Our lives do not always go as planned. Sometimes we face challenges and difficulties. Even in the times when we feel down, our Creator is good and we should express our thankfulness for His goodness.
Like the Mohegan teach us, "Mundo Wigo", our Creator is good and will sustain us. Be thankful in all things!
Thank You for always being with me. Please help me to remember that You are always there, through the good and the challenging. Allow me to rely on Your goodness and love for strength. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
