Happy Thanksgiving!!

"give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."
- 1 Thes 5:18

The reality as Christians is that we have so much to be thankful for... whether our circumstances are great or our circumstances are brutal. Whether rich or poor, healthy or sick, happy or sad we were designed with a capacity for an unconquerable attitude of gratitude because of who Jesus is in us, who Jesus is to us, and who Jesus is through us. God has not made us to be fair-weather appreciators, but rather all-weather thankers. Our faith rises above our circumstances. Our wings soar not only above the storm, but more importantly, right through the storm. And that's the point. In a dark world that is upside down we don't have to wait until everything is made right before we glow with thanksgiving. We don't have to feel great to be thankful. On this wonderful day called Thanksgiving God reminds us that the best day of the year to give thanks is everyday of the year.

I thank You Father for all good things that come from above.
And I thank You in all things for how You work for my good and for Your glory.
Thank You Jesus!!
