As I write this I have so much thankfulness in my heart. I am thankful for my friends and family for all the ways they bless and have blessed my life each and everyday. I am thankful for all of the lessons God has taught me throughout my life, both good and bad, for they have truly made me who I am and brought me to where I am today. I am thankful for the calling God put on my life and for His confidence in me to serve Him. Most of all I am thankful for Him becoming flesh and dying on the cross to pay the debt I owed but could never pay for my sin. I am not worthy. None of us are worthy and that’s what makes it so amazing.
While my list of things to be thankful for is long I only list a few of the most important here because I want to ask you what you are thankful for today and every day. I know somedays it may be hard to think of things to be thankful for but is important to find things each and everyday. Sometimes we need to learn to be thankful for even the bad things that happen because they open the door for better things and sometimes those bad things give you a testimony that God needs you to have later in life.
Today I want you to start seven straight days of finding at least three things to be thankful for. I guarantee it will change the way you think and your outlook. Let thanksgiving start today but don’t let it end today.
What are you thankful for?
