As we are approaching the Thanksgiving season, I am thinking on the many blessings, good times and how thankful I am for God’s goodness throughout the year! It is a good thing to celebrate Thanksgiving to give us a constant reminder of all of our blessings of God in our lives. However, we don’t ever want to be too busy to be thankful throughout the rest of the year also. Centering our thoughts on our blessings and the goodness in our lives keeps our soul; our mind, our will and our emotions healthy. The alternative causes us fear, anxiety and worry. There are many places in the Word of God which tell us how to keep our thoughts moving in the right direction. The scriptures below are just two of many!! Enjoy and search out some of the others as part of your time with the Lord!
In Philippians 4:8 “Finally brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy – meditate on these things.”
I am thankful for each of you and blessed that God has put you in my life! What a mighty God we serve and a mighty time we are living in!! Praise the Lord!
