“In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:18
What are you thankful for in this holiday season? Have you allowed your circumstances to overwhelm your heart of gratitude? Can you be thankful no matter what your circumstances are?
I don’t know about you, but as the year draws to a close and I reflect on God’s goodness, all He has done on my behalf, who He is, all that He means to me, and where He has brought me from, I have a lot for which to be thankful. I am thankful for life, His grace and mercy that have kept me throughout the past year. In spite of all that is going on in the world–the viruses, terrorism, and sickness, He has protected me from premature death and preserved me in His perfect will. Moreover, I am thankful for my wife and children, staff, friends, clients and finally, the fact that Jesus is Lord.
