"Be Ye Thankful"

Colossians 3:15b "...be ye thankful."

Being thankful... Sometimes this is not always so easy...

At times, I feel overwhelmed and busy... tired or lazy... ungrateful because things aren't going the way I want... frustrated over silly things (even though they may not seem silly at the time)... complaining because of this or that... Ugh.

But, if I stop to think about what is going on in my life, even when things aren't "perfect"--do I really have any reason not to be thankful? Salvation and God's words to me... my husband, my son... my house, my health... my new business... losing weight (tee-hee!)... hmmm... good food, great friends....

Wow! And I'm just getting started! This list could continue on for sure!

Now, why was I feeling so "Not Thankful"?!?!?!?!!???!?

I don't want this post to seem generic--I just wanted to hopefully get everyone to thinkin'...

Don't complain today... Be ye thankful!

Tell the Lord how thankful you are for all He has done. Tell your spouse how thankful you are for them. Tell your children how thankful you are for them. Call your mom and tell her how thankful you are for her!! : )

And most definitely, drop a note here on our blog and let us know why you are thankful today! I can't wait to hear from you!

  1. I am thankful for the students I get to work with each day. That I get the opportunity to share Christ and help them grow in the LORD.
