Be Thankful

1 Thessalonians 5:18 {NIV)

18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus .

This verse at times can be a challenge as it isn’t the first thing we think about when things go badly wrong. But God has a better way, He says to be grateful in all circumstances. Instead of blaming and wailing about our circumstances give thanks to all the good things in our lives.

If we start each day and focus on all the good things that God has done for us, then it is easier to be positive and thankful. We can start by giving God praise for shedding His blood on the cross for our sins. Then start looking at the little things that God has blessed us with.

Many are things we take for granted and we often overlook as blessings from God. As this is being written, out the window two cardinals are at the bird feeder and then two hummingbirds are fighting over who gets the roost at the hummingbird feeder. These are just examples of some of the beauty that God shares with us that puts a smile in our hearts.

God is in it all. When we live like this, it is as if our eyes are opened, and we start to taste and see all that God blesses us with.

Psalm 34:8 (NIV)

8 Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
