Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. -I Thess. 5:18
After my friend, Matt Crummy, commented on my post yesterday, I knew I had to write a second part to it. Matt said this, “One thing I’ve learned in this is in addition to the ‘best part’ being before you get something is the opportunity to thank God for it (where it came from) and to grow in understanding of His faithfulness and goodness.”
That hit home for me, big time! Thanking God for what He’s blessed you with is one of the greatest things we can do in life.If you’ll take a few minutes and list all the things you have in your life, a car, a house, a spouse, etc, I think you’ll find that God has been very good to you.
Learn to take time to give God thanks for what He’s already done for your life. He’s given you His Son, salvation, grace, mercy, peace, joy, an abundant life, the list goes on and on. If it wasn’t for God we couldn’t take our next breathe, we wouldn’t be here, we couldn’t enjoy our lives the way He enables us to. He’s a faithful God, He’s taken care of you in the past, He’ll take care of you now, and in the future.
Be Thankful… it’s One of the Best Parts of Getting What You Want!
Thanks for the insight Matt!
