Happy Thanksgiving

Have you noticed how difficult it is to remain thankful when things aren’t quite going according to plan? Or is that just me?! I often find myself telling my daughter to find something to be thankful for no matter what, after all, 1 Thessalonians 5:18 NLT says, “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.”
But when the rubber meets the road, I’m not always very good at following my own advice. So what better time than Thanksgiving to take a moment to be thankful? So here are some of the things for which I’m grateful:
  • God’s presence
  • Joy
  • The refining process (not always fun, but definitely worth it in the end)
  • God’s protection of my kids’ hearts
  • His protection of my heart
  • God’s love shown to me through those He’s sent to support and encourage me
  • Peace
  • Strength
  • Comfort
  • God’s direction
I’m sure if I sat here for a while longer, I could continue to find things for which to be thankful. But just taking these few moments to be grateful has refocused my heart and helped me to be ready to enjoy a festive Thanksgiving with my wonderful family.
Happy Thanksgiving!
