::: Give Thanks :::

We have so much in life to be thankful for. We walk, talk, see, hear, think, breathe – usually without effort. Why do we spend so much time dwelling on what we can’t do, don’t have and what is going wrong? 

We can instantly recall the negative experiences, people and circumstances without recognizing we have the ability to walk away, get away or make a change. Perhaps we have too many options from which to choose. Or it could be we simply like to complain.

Maybe if we spent just a little time saying “thank you” for what we do have, we won’t have so much time to dwell on what we lack. 

Gratitude, praise, and thanksgiving activate the divine laws of abundance. Even when it seems that the well is drying up, we can affirm, “I can hardly wait to see the good that will come out of this" knowing by faith,  that God's goodness lies just around the corner. May you be thankful on this day and every day thereafter. And in doing so, radiate God's goodness to the world.

“Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” 
(1 Thessalonians 5:18)
Always thank God the Father for everything in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 5:20)
