A Life of Thanks

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

THINK
With Thanksgiving in our rearview mirror and Christmas on the horizon, this is a time of year when many people focus on what they are grateful for. They look around at what God has blessed them with and take time to thank Him for all they have. But that attitude of gratitude isn’t just one that should be reserved for this time of year. In fact, God wants us to experience a life of thanksgiving – in all circumstances.

Think about all you have in your life – from the people you know to the opportunities you have. Think about the about what God has blessed you with. Commit to living a life of thanksgiving for all the blessings you have – not just during this holiday season, but every moment of every day.

PRAY
Take a few minutes to simply thank God for the blessings in your life. List them out one by one, and truly stand in awe and humility as you consider how God has brought that blessing into your life.

ACT
Who are you thankful for? Have you let them know it? Take a minute to send a friend of yours a text, write them a letter, or give them a call to let them know how truly thankful you are to have them in your life.
