It’s November and we all know what that means….. Thanksgiving! While we think about the big feast we are all about to partake in at the end of the month. The turkey, the mashed potatoes, the cranberry sauce (for those of you who like that stuff). Also, let us also remember that this month is a time to focus on being thankful. This month as you may know we are doing our 30 Day Gratitude Challenge, and in honor of that I would like to give you some scripture to reflect on during this month.
Every day you should wake up feeling grateful for the things that the Lord has blessed you with. This starts your day off right. So, wake up every morning and think of all that you have to be grateful for and even sing a joyful song, to let the Lord know you are thankful for the life he has given you each day.
Sometimes worry and anxiety will creep into your mind. Instead of letting it linger there, give it up to the Lord. Thank him for taking your worry and anxiety away and turning your thoughts in a more positive direction. Practicing this every day will make it easier and change the way you think on a day to day basis.
Be thankful for all of the people and things that you have in your life. For it was the Lord that created all of this. Even when things don’t seem to be going your way know that the Lord has a reason for everything and be thankful for the blessing that will come from whatever it is that may have you down. Worship the lord even in your darkest of days.
Don’t just say you are grateful, you must use your talents that the Lord has given you to show him that you are grateful for the blessings he has bestowed upon you. Therefore, serve where you can in honor of God giving you these blessings. Praise him so that others will know him.
The Lord wants us to have a peaceful heart. So give your heart over to the Lord and be thankful for all of the blessings in your life.
I hope these scriptures touched your life in some way. Giving Thanks should not be restricted to just the month of November. Practice these things throughout life and you will feel peace and joy every day.
