give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

1 Thessalonians 5:18 ESV


Midweek thoughts


With it being the beginning of November, this is the time that everyone starts to think about Thanksgiving.  It’s just a few short weeks and it will be here.  We start to make plans for where we are going, who we are inviting over, what we will fix, what others will bring, all in preparation for a wonderful gathering of friends and family. 

What I like the best about November are all the thoughts that come to mind about all the things I am thankful for.  Many people even do a daily post on social media for what they are thankful for.  Most people put a lot of thought into what they are thankful for before posting or speaking.  This is something that we should do not just in November, but every day.

God wants us to give thanks always, no matter what our circumstances.  Whether everything is going along well or there is a rough spot, we need to give thanks to Him for each blessing.  Even trials can be blessings.  When times are difficult or we are going through a tough situation, we should always praise God. Even our trials are used by Him to strengthen us and to glorify Him.

Praise God every day.  Be thankful for the many wonderful blessings you see as well as the times when things are not so bright.  Know that even through difficult times, He is with us and working for our own good.

Give thanks every day for His gift of love.
