Thankful

Not too long ago I read a quote my Max Lucado that said something along the lines of, “What if tomorrow, you only had everything you thanked God for today?”

This really got me thinking about how I take so many things for granted without simply stopping to thank God for everything He has blessed me with. I couldn’t remember the last time I thanked God for clothes on my back, food to eat all the time, the chance to get a university education, a family that loved me, a brand new opportunity to get up each morning, etc. I could go on for hours. I’ve got so much to be thankful. And chances are if you’re reading this on a computer, or phone, or iPad, then you’ve got lots to be thankful for also.

James 1:17 tells us that “every good and perfect gift is from above…” I want to start giving more honor and thanks where it is due, so my new goal is going to be to thank God for at least one thing in my life every single day. I’m really believing it will help me keep my perspectives in check and stay thankful and humble, knowing that everything I’ve been given has come from above.

I’m gonna encourage you to join me in being thankful DAILY! And I believe it’ll bless you too.

TODAY, I’m thankful that you took time out of your busy day to read my blog! 🙂
