As you think about the future…give thanks and trust God…Even when life may be difficult, we should thank God for all He does for us- which we do not deserve.
Why wait until the fourth Thursday in November? Why wait until the morning of December twenty-fifth? Thanksgiving to God should be an everyday affair. The time to be thankful is now!
A little boy kneeling by the side of the bed looked up to heaven and prayed, “And now, God, let me tell you about the things I’m not thankful for.”
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.
I can seldom read scripture now without tears of joy and gratitude.
