A Time to Give Thanks
Give thanks to the lord for he is good! His mercy endures forever. - Psalm 136:1
I like to view thanksgiving as an opportunity for me to really focus on the good. As I have been preparing my apartment for the Thanksgiving feast, I marveled at how far I've come in a year. This time last year, I didn't want to see my family, and I certainly didn't feel thankful for a darn thing.
But this year is different. I feel thankful for quite a few things. Some things I have written about here, some I have not yet. November isn't over, though, so neither is the Thankfulness Challenge.
As you spend time with your family on this day, I pray you would find yourself in a space of gratitude at some point. Reflect on how God has blessed you. You may not be in exactly the place you want to be, but the Lord is right there with you and is blessing you along the way. And that, in itself, is something to be thankful for.
