Always Be Thankful

 

As we pause to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends let us remember that we all have much to be thankful for. We may not have all the things we want or reached some goals in our lives, but each of us has so much to be thankful for. The turkey may not turn out right and the cake may fall, but we still should be thankful. The Lord is good to us, and as we look around the world we will soon discover that we are truly blessed. There are those who do not have any food or a place to call home, but The Lord has seen fit for us to have those things in our lives, and we should be thankful for everything The Lord has done and is doing in our lives. The Scripture reminds us to be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for us who belong to Christ Jesus. I encourage you today to be thankful in every circumstance that you face in life. Be thankful when things are going your way, and be thankful when things are not going your way. Be thankful when the sun is shining in your life, and be thankful with the strong winds begin to blow in your life. Be thankful in every circumstance that The Lord allows you to be in, for when you can be thankful in everything, you will see The Lord in everything, and as long as you belong to The Lord, you will be able to make it through it all. I truly have so much to be thankful for and in every circumstance, I face in my life I will thank The Lord for it all. Since I will be thankful in all circumstances and situations in my life I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"

 

Prayer

Lord thank you for everything you have done and are doing in my life. Lord I thank you for it all. I love you Lord. In Jesus Name Amen.
