Giving Thanks

The Word says,

…in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

 I Thessalonians 5:18

This morning, as I get ready for a day full of family, food, and football, I want to thank the Lord for:

  • His love for me and His grace by which I am saved
  • His Son Who gave His life on the Cross for the forgiveness of my sin
  • My hope – confident expectation – of eternal life
  • The promise of abundant life today
  • My wife and children
  • Our health
  • The basic necessities of life: shelter, food, clothes
  • Family and friends

Giving thanks to the Lord for everything in life should be a daily part of my life. But, I have to admit that life gets extremely busy and I often fail to remember and praise God for His activity and blessings in my life and the lives of my wife and children.

So, as I reflect on His goodness today, may I commit myself to remember and praise Him daily for Who He is and for His grace, love, and blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
