Do I remember to give God thanks for my blessings? How about for my trials?
In 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18 it says to rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
Give thanks in all circumstances.
Yes, in all circumstances.
When I'm running late and I get stuck at another red light?
Thankful for an opportunity to speak to Him.
When I burn dinner?
Thankful that I have food to eat.
Thankful I have Him to lean on when life is too heavy to bear alone.
But, am I giving Him thanks for those small things? Am I taking the time to thank Him for my small blessings.
Today, take some time to thank Him for your blessings and your trials.
Jesus, we thank You. We thank you for everything in our lives. The good, the bad. We lay it all out before you and give thanks. We know that You will use all things to work together for our good. And we trust in You, now and forever. Amen.
