Colossians 3:15 New International Version (NIV)
15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Being thankful is not just a one time event for Thanksgiving Day. The Bible says, “Be thankful in everything, in all circumstances.” Too often we get overwhelmed by life and worry about tomorrow. It is in those moments that we hold on to promises that God said he would never leave us or forsake us. We have truly been blessed by the Father with a free gift of salvation and eternal life.
I would like you to take time and write out what you are thankful for. You will find out just how much you have been blessed this year.
Being thankful is a choice, and I think all of us are thankful for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that we serve a God who never quits and forever loves his creation.
Thankfulness describes my relationship with my wife. I am thankful that she loves Jesus more than she loves me. That I am blessed with a treasure from the Lord, and I am thankful to have my wife to do life with.
I am also thankful our children, spouses, and grandchildren. I am thankful for my parents and family.
When you realize how blessed you are, you will be like George Bailey in the move, It’s a Wonderful Life, when he realizes how fortunate he is with family and friends. We all have blessings in our lives. Cultivate a thankful heart.
