Being Thankful

A question was asked of us the other day about thankfulness. Here's the question, if you woke up tomorrow and only had what you were thankful for today what would your life look like?

I take so much for granted without even a thought of how blessed I am. Thankfulness should be as natural as breathing to us, but for me it's not. I was freshly convicted last night and reminded of how much the Lord has given me each and every day. Simple things like water when I turn on the tap, lights when I flip on the switch, food in my pantry and fridge.

I have a loving husband and family, friends and a church. God has control over my life, my eternal future, is secure,  I have so much to be thankful for and yet I find it so easy to complain, this should not be. Looking to be more thankful in the days ahead.

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you  1Thessalonians 5 :18
