Day 1: Thank you


Happy November 1!

Let's begin our 22 Days of

GRATITUDE

by

THANKING GOD

for something

or

for someone

that you really don't want to be thankful for.

Hmm...

now that sounds a wee bit harsh,

but let me explain.

Is it

A circumstance that is out of your control?

A path that you don't want to walk?

The image you see in the mirror?

Is it

an unresolved conflict?

a misunderstanding?

a breach of trust?

Whatever

"IT" is

place it in the blank.~

THANK YOU GOD for ____________________,

because I know that YOU love me.

Short and simple

yet so hard to do at times

when "THANK YOU" are the last words that you want to say.

But

we aren't rejoicing over the

"IT"

that may be causing us great pain.

GRATITUDE

it is rejoicing over

who

GOD IS

in the midsts of the

"IT"~

just as Paul, who penned these words while he was in prison, did~

“Sing and make music in your heart to the LORD, always giving

THANKS to GOD THE FATHER for everything,

in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Ephesians 5:19-20)

Because we know that

GOD

is

GOD

and

JESUS

is

JESUS~

JOY is HIM

PEACE is HIM

HOPE is HIM

and

HE

never changes.

Let's take a step of

GRATITUDE

and experience

an

EXTRAORDINARY GOD

in the midst of the

less than extraordinary,

by just not going through the

MOTIONS (LISTEN BELOW)
