When we take the time to be thankful regardless of our circumstance, God blesses us abundantly. It may be hard to be thankful during trying times but we are much more thankful when they end. Being thankful when it is hard instantly changes our perspective on the situation. Being thankful in all situations increases our faith.
I would also say that being thankful is contagious. When I am around others who are thankful when I am not, I am instantly able to give thanks. My mood shifts and my life goes much better. When I am alone and don’t feel like being thankful, I give thanks anyway(for simple things) which lead me to being thankful for everything.
We truly have so much to be thankful for in our lives. I am thankful for all that God has brought me through. I am thankful for my life. I am thankful for the great people that God has put in my life.
What are you thankful for today?
Shalom and Blessing
“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:20 KJV
