Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on the blessings God has bestowed on us. What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving season?
Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good;
for his steadfast love endures forever!
Psalm 118:1 (ESV)
Amid the strife and divide permeating nearly every aspect of our society, you and I have a lot to be grateful and thankful for. Ours is truly an age like no age before it. Sure, we could focus on what we don’t have, but what’s the point in that? We need to focus on what we have, not on what’s missing in our lives.
God made you just the way you are. There is no one else who can quite be you like you. Life is precious. Don’t waste it caught up in trying to obtain treasures that rust. Acquire those things that are eternal, that last beyond this lifetime.
Live life in praise. Don’t gloat and don’t mope. Neither are good attitudes positionally or eternally. God’s got you. Don’t ever doubt that. Even when you’re walking through the fire and enduring a tumultuous storm. Keep your eyes on Jesus, trusting Him to see you through whatever adversity you are facing.
I am thankful.
I’m thankful for my life and my beautiful wife, Sweet T. I’m grateful for our families and our four-legged fur babies. I’m overwhelmed with joy at being used by God as a vessel for delivering the Gospel. I am grateful for recovery and second chances. I am happy to have the opportunity every day to motivate someone to be and do better. I’m thankful for God’s grace and mercy. He is so good, it’s unfathomable much of the time. I am thankful for friends—new and old—they make life better. I’m grateful for you—the reader—who takes time to reflect on the words I’ve written.
What are you thankful for?
Praying you and your family will have a fantastic Thanksgiving!
