Being Thankful Every Day

Gratefulness should become a way of life. If you stop and really think about the first five minutes of your day, what you are grateful for, you will begin to see how grateful you are. You did wake up, you have a bed, you have a house, you are not in the elements, you have a job, you don't need a job, you are not in ill health, you have a family, you have water to bathe, you will have breakfast, your pets get to eat, you have freedom, you have a phone if someone had an emergency you would have heard, you can get news immediately, you can open your curtains and see the outside world and not be afraid, you have a relationship with Jesus, your children have a relationship with Jesus, you were raised in the church, you have friends, you are a child of the King and the list goes on. 1 Chronicles 16: 8, “‘Oh, give thanks to the Lord and pray to him,’ they sang. ‘Tell the people of the world about his mighty doings.’”

Millions never pause to give a word of thanks to God for the food provided. Even at Thanksgiving, only a minority will pause and give thanks to God. God is so good, and His people truly should have a thankful heart, praising Him for who He is and what He has done.

Thanksgiving is not just a holiday with turkey but a heart of gratitude! Thanksgiving is recognition of a debt that cannot be paid. Let’s remain in the attitude of thankfulness. Colossians 3: 17, “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Let’s make every day a day of thanksgiving. God is good every day!
