“Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 

(Ephesians 5:20)

Finding a reason to be thankful in every situation, regardless of the adversity you are faced with, brings you closer to God.  It opens your heart to His presence and your thoughts to His thoughts.  Jesus died on the cross for our sins so that we could have eternal life.  Through His sacrifice, we were sent the Holy Spirit, and through the Holy Spirit we have direct contact with God.  If you let that resonate with you, why would we not thank God every single day throughout the day for everything He has given us, and will continue to give?  All we need to do is give Him thanks, trust in Him, and believe that good things are coming our way!  When we are in His presence, it’s like He is allowing us to see things from His perspective.  It is His shining light that opens our eyes and warms our hearts even in the midst of adversity. 

While Thanksgiving Day is a day to give Thanks, let’s not stop at this one day.  Continue to give God and your loved ones your time, your love, your thanks, and your respect for what each of them have done for you!
