"IN EVERY THING GIVE THANKS: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." 1 Thess 5:18 <<< What a command! It doesn't say give thanks in some things, but EVERYTHING. No matter what you may be going through, there is ALWAYS something to be thankful for. Phillipians 4:8 instructs us to count our blessings. Although it's not always easy, I try my best to practice this nugget of wisdom daily. I dare you to do the same. In joy--give thanks! In financial struggles--give thanks! In pain--give thanks! In heartbreak--give thanks! In promotion and demotion--give thanks! In EVERYTHING, count your blessings, name them one by one and GIVE THANKS!!! Let's practice walking in gratitude not just on Thanksgiving, but lets strive to walk out that GRATITUDE365!!!
~Encouraging you as I encourage myself~
