God has taken care of us and as we remember all those blessings in our lives, we should be thankful. Thanking God for all the ways He has made of us and the blessings He has poured into our lives, is essential. However, we should not only thank God for the great things that He is doing in our lives, but we should thank God all the time. There is not a circumstance or a situation, when we should not thank God. The Scripture reminds us to, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. I encourage you today to give thanks. When things are going well, give thanks, when trials and tribulations come your way, give thanks, when friends are few, give thanks. When you are sure and unsure, give thanks, because this is the will of God in Christ for you. Let today be a day of thanksgiving unto The Lord in all circumstances. I am thankful for all of the blessings The Lord has poured upon me, and I am thankful for the rough places along the road of life, knowing that they have come to make me stronger. Since I will give thanks in all circumstances I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Lord, I just want to say thank you for everything. In Jesus Name Amen.
