"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning, great is Your faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22,23
You may be feeling blessed and so thankful today... or you may be feeling stressed, discouraged, and far from a thankful spirit. Giving thanks is easy when things are going our way. Giving thanks when life is hard... that’s another story! But that touches on the very heart of what Thanksgiving is all about. It is not so much about the absence of trouble as it is about choosing to focus on a loving heavenly Father and His faithful provision for us as His children. Let us choose today to be thankful to the Lord for the ways He has provided for us... most of all for forgiveness and new life through faith in Christ. This is a perfect time to begin a daily “Praise list” that you add to each day, reminding yourself of things to be thankful for. It can help to change your attitude and build your faith! Every day there will be reasons to be frustrated and discouraged, but every day there will also be things that you can be thankful for. Let's choose to believe that our faithful, loving God is working to accomplish His good will in our lives, even through the hard things. May we express that faith in giving thanks each day!
"Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures forever." Psalm 136:1
