In everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5 : 18
We take so many things for granted.
Take a few minutes a day to count your many BLESSINGS.
Cultivating a thankful spirit and taking time to express appreciation for the good things that come our way does something for our mental attitude;
It also brings joy and peace to our lives.
When adversity comes upon us – we are asked to look at these times and even if it sounds hard we are asked to give thanks.
Joy is not an escape from sorrow. Pain and hardship still come, but they are unable to drive away the happiness of the redeemed. Laughter is the delight that things are working together for good to them who love God.
His ways are dependable, His promises sure.
Be thankful not only for the ‘gifts’ but also for the GIVER.
