A Time to Be Thankful
Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 5:19b-20 (NIV)
This month I've been sharing mostly random things on my personal and author Facebook pages that I'm thankful for. Things like hot water, that I don't have to wash our clothes by hand, that we have a dishwasher. November is a great time to cultivate a heart of thankfulness.
When asked what you're thankful for... I think most would immediately say their family, friends, job, etc. It's not that I don't appreciate those too and am tremendously blessed to have them in my life. But I can't help but think that there are so many things in our lives that we are to be thankful for... that we often overlook. Even those difficult times we experience. Those times that bring us to our knees because we know that progress will only be made if God intervenes in the situation.
I challenge you to cultivate a heart of thankfulness, especially as we'll soon be moving into the season where we celebrate the birth of our beloved Savior. We have SO many things that we can thank the Lord for.
How about you? What are you grateful for today?
