Being Thankful

Being thankful is a state of being or a mind set in which no matter what is going on in our lives we are still grateful and thankful so being thankful is not just about Thanksgiving which is only one day a year but we are to be thankful and have an attitude at all times and in all things. We as Christians are always supposed to be thankful because of who we are and Who’s we are. All through the Bible there is scripture that tells us about being thankful such as 1st Chronicles 16:34 which says, ” Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, His love endures forever.” 1st Thessalonians 5:18 which says, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” and in Colossians 3:15 it tells us this, ” Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Then Colossians 3:17 says, “And whatever you do, whether in words or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”Colossians 4:2 says, “Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” I could go on and on and on but I won’t because I believe that we all get the message and the command to be thankful so as I said earlier it is a state of being and a mindset of thankfulness. So let us always give thanks and be thankful for it will please God our Father and it will open doors and blessings for us and our family. So be blessed and have a great Thanksgiving but don’t let being thankful end there.
