I find that one of the mistakes I make in my writing involves the use of prepositions. Not the overuse of them but the incorrect use of them. I choose the wrong preposition quite often. When someone points the problems out, they seem obvious.

Take the below verse into consideration:

1 Thessalonians 5:17-18 (New International Version)

17pray continually; 18give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

I’ve always thought it would be difficult to give thanks in all circumstances. But the verse doesn’t say give thanks “for” the circumstance, but it says “in” the circumstance. So, during the trial you are going through, still give thanks to God.
