Many people find it easy to be thankful when things go well,

 but they find it hard to be thankful when things go wrong. We quikly forget our years of good health after a few days of illness. We quickly forget our years of freedom after a few days of confinement. And thankfulness drains away along with declining strength. 

Do not lose your thankful spirit when you lose your health. God has not left you. His love has not failed you. God still wants the best for you, whether or not you may understand that right now. Do not focus on what you have lost. Give thanks for what you have.

"Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crops fails, and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior" (Habakkuk 3:17-18). Our feelings should not be controlled by the events around us but by faith in God's ability to give us strength. When nothing makes sense, and when troubles seem more than you can bear, remember that God gives strength. Take your eyes off your difficulties and look to God!
