Life is generally not a bed of roses. Some days everything goes wrong, other days we just make it without any disasters, and then some days everything falls into place.
We are thankful and say God is good when things are going our way. The truth is, God is always good.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 says
"In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you".
The will of God is that we give thanks all the time. We live in gratitude! What is so special when we do that is, thoughts of thankfulness have a completely unique effect on us.
A critical spirit, or a spirit of complaining, a heavy-hardheartedness, envyings, or strife's have no other choice but to leave our presence when faced with the presence of God....
This holiday, let's determine to live thankful! Find what is good, and lovely, and of good report!
Make a list of all God has done for you! Look for them, seek them as the precious treasure they are!
