A Heart of Thanks

17 11 2011

Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.  I Thessalonians 5:18

Approaching life through the powerful lens of gratefulness is a blessed way to view our lives.  We have so much to thank God for.  We sometimes take for granted the many blessings that keep us through the night, that wake us up each morning and to start each day.  Blessings great and small are extended to us throughout our lives.  No matter what we are experiencing, we have something that we can be thankful for.  In fact, when we are struggling to find that “something”, it is a good time to turn our thoughts to gratefulness.  Redirecting our focus from our problems to God’s blessings has a way of transforming our mindset from concerns and worries toward having faith.  It is hard to think of God’s goodness to us, past and present and not be thankful. God’s promises to provide for our needs as we walk and trust in Him.  Keeping a heart of thanks blesses us along the journey.
