Thankful Thursday

Thursday, September 05, 2013

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” ~Melody Beattie~

We were having a discussion yesterday about how easy it is to forget about the little things in life. We find ourselves often thanking God for food, shelter, and clothing. Please don’t hear us saying that those are not things we should thank God for, however, we believe they are not the only things we should be thanking God for.

For the month of September we’re challenging ourselves to thank God for things we normally don’t on a daily basis…those small things that would make a world of a difference if we were to go without them.

“Today, I am thankful for being able to exercise at the gym and not getting out of breath. With asthma, I often find myself huffing and puffing after exercise, but today I didn’t! God, I thank you for breathing through me!” ~ Shanita

“Today, I am thankful for the ability to make a decision without getting all bent out of shape. Sometimes, I struggle to make a decision, going back and forth on what to do. I thank God for His Spirit whom worked through me and gave me confidence and a reminder of the sound mind I have dwelling within!”  ~ Melanie

Will you join us in showing gratitude for the little things in your life! What are you thankful for today?

Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Ephesians 5:20, NIV)

  2. I have a lot to be thankful for, overall I just thank God for waking me up this morning and having the activity of my limbs. I thank God for being able to have a job when a lady stopped me at the gas station today and handed me her resume asking me if I saw someone who was hiring to put her resume in and she didn't even know me from Adam. She was so desperate for employment, and though I am not happy with my current job that I am performing in I am thankful to have one to be a resource for me to pay my bills and live.

    1. Wow!

      Nedra, what a major blessing that is and a definite reason to be thankful....even in our sometimes unfavorable situations, God has shown us a reason to give him thanks. We're so glad that you were able to assist another lady. God's Spirit brought her your way. Continue living for Him and he'll bring souls to you to lead to Him! We are thankful that you swapped with us today!
