“It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning, And Your faithfulness every night." (Psalm 92:1-2 NKJV)
“In everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” (I Thessalonians 5:18 NKJV)
Giving thanks is my act of worship. I can worship because I love my Abba Father. Even when things aren't going the way I'd like for them to go I know that He loves me. He is working on me and in me through the storms I face.
I give thanks for the process that builds my character to reflect His.
I give thanks for the process that causes me to trust His character and His Word.
I give thanks for the process that causes my faith to be strengthened and stretched.
Through it all I am learning the importance of a thankful heart at all times, not just in the good times. No matter what is going on in my life I have the security of knowing that my Abba Father loves me so I can give thanks.
“O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever.” (Psalm 136:1 AMPC)
“Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!” (I Chronicles 16:8 NKJV)
I give thanks for my husband. He is my covering and the keeper of my heart. Through it all he's been right there cheering me on, believing in me, and loving me.
Whether in peace or in the storms of life there is always something to be thankful for.
What are you thankful for?
