As always, this time of year leads people to pause and consider what all we are so thankful for. It’s one of the best times of year because, if we do it right, it forces us to look at the silver linings in our lives and appreciate them.
Our daily lives can be so stressful. From work to family, to extra curricular activities, there is so much to do, so little time to accomplish it in and so many people out there in the same exact boat; allowing those situations to affect their judgment and mood which affect everyone else.
Colossians 3:15 – Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Thanksgiving may not be (in general) about God, but it is about life and people and God made us ALL, so it all kind of goes together. He wanted us to be happy. He wanted us to share our lives with others. He wanted us to show thanks for everything he created for us.
Hebrews 12:28 – Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe.
What on earth could I add to that? Except maybe…. I hope and pray every one of you have just as blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving as I intend to!
