Each of us has so much to be thankful for. As we look at our lives and see all of the marvelous things that The Lord has done in our lives we cannot help but to be thankful. If The Lord had not blessed us we would not be where we are today, and so there are many reasons for us to be thankful. We should not only be thankful when things are working out in our favor, we should also be thankful when we do not know how things are going to work out. We should be thankful on our good and bad days. 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 in all things to give God thanks, because this is His will for you. When everything is going your way, give Him thanks. When you do not know how you are going to make it, give God thanks. When the rain is pouring in your life, give God thanks. In all circumstances and situations that you facing your life, give God thanks for always being there for you and making ways for you. No matter how bad a situation may be, it could always be worse if it had not been for The Lord being there for you. I will always thank God for how good He has been to me. No matter if I am having a good day or a bad day, I have learned to thank The Lord for all He does for me. Since I will always give God thanks I have no doubt, “It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Thank you Lord for all that you do for me and from all that you keep from me. In Jesus Name Amen.
