Recently I remembered several things the Lord had shown me a few months back…
I just don’t do it enough. I’m reminded of what the Word says: “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD – to give thanks in all things.
A while ago, Hubby, the B, and I were running errands after church. I certainly was in a thank-less mood due to feeling somewhat ill. Neither of us were in the mood to prepare a meal so we stopped at a nearby restaurant for a late lunch. About halfway through our meal, a couple from our church walked by and sat in the booth across from us. They are always so kind and loving. (And they adore Little B! Who’s to blame them?) After our meal, we asked for our receipt and found that it had been covered in full! What a blessing! This sweet couple didn’t know what our finances look like that day, but they chose to listen to the Holy Spirit’s leading to bless us. And bless us it did!
I am constantly amazed by the grace, sustenance, and faithfulness of the Lord and the beauty of His people walking in obedience to His prompting!
So yes! I am trying to learn thankfulness! Thank you dear friends who blessed us so! And thank you wonderful Father who knows our every need! Please continue to give me eyes to see Your blessings and a heart to receive them with gratitude!
Grace and peace!
