“Whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Colossians 3: 17
No matter what we do, no matter what happens to us, we are to GIVE THANKS to God our Father!! He makes everything bearable!! He turns everything into good for those who love Him!! (Rms. 8: 28)
Let us give thanks for….
…the abundance we have,
… the family and friends placed in our lives,
… the food and water we have daily,
… the roof over our head,
… the promise of the sun rising again tomorrow and new beginnings,
and let us, also, give thanks for….
… the muscles and joints that ache, it reminds us that we have a body that still functions,
… for loss of work, it gives us the opportunity to volunteer our time, let others help us
and to TURN to God and TRUST HIM in all things,
… our new President-elect (whether we voted for him or not) he needs our prayers!,
… the health issues we come up against and the limitations they bring which
cause us to fall to our knees,
… the loss of family members, it reminds us of what is waiting for
us, Paradise, and reunion with them!
