Be thankful // 14-08-23

“Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5‬:‭18‬ ‭NLT‬‬

God isn’t some sadistic control freak demanding that we cheer up and put on a smiley face when life is tough. He doesn’t ask us to be thankful for the trials that we encounter, but when troubles come, as we know they will, thankfulness is the thing that will lift us out of the mire and help us not to lose heart and not to be overcome. It’s that important! And when good times and success comes, thankfulness is what helps us maintain a right sense of humility. It’s a great stabiliser, it keeps things in balance! As you wake up this morning what are you thankful for? This is what is going to set the tone for today as you head into this new week. The more you turn your heart to thanking God, the more you will see to be thankful for. Lord, thank You this new day, for another opportunity to experience life and to appreciate all that I do have, regardless of what I still feel that I lack right now. Teach me to be thankful today. Amen 👆🏼🙏🏼😊
