Even though it may be difficult to be thankful at certain times we need to make a personal decision that we are going to be grateful people even when we do not feel like it or when it is hard. Er trsf om 1 Thessalonians 5:18 “Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” The quality of my life is determined not by the circumstances which I face, but my personal choices in the face of those circumstances. God has promised to be with us in the midst of our circumstances, and we need to focus our attention not on the here and now, but on the reality of the future. We live in a sin-cursed world, that brings trouble and trials, it is not until we live in the presence of the Lord for all eternity, that our lives will finally be free from the battle with our circumstances. Today, begin a regular routine of finding something each and every day to give thanks for. No matter how small or insignificant your blessing is, you can write it down and review it over the coming year. To do so will give you at least 365 different things to remember that you are grateful for. Doing so will surprise you at how that list will change your life! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!!
