JUST GIVE THANKS Every day that you are able to open your eyes to see a new morning is a day of thanksgiving. Many start out their day going to a destination and never make it. Many lie down to sleep at night and never wake up. As long as their is life their is hope. Your circumstances can change at any time and any moment. Just give God thanks for he is worthy and deserving of your thanksgiving. One of the first lesson parents teach their children is to give thanks. You teach them to say "thank you" when someone gives them something, does something for them or says something nice to them or about them. Saying "thank you" is a sign of politeness, appreciation and gratitude. It makes the person that is doing something for you feel that you do not take their actions on your behalf for granted. It releases joy to both the giver and the recipient of the gift. Just give God thanks for he is worthy and deserving of your thanksgiving. In every thing give thanks : for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thess 5:18. It is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High Psalms 92:1 Give thanks unto the LORD, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the people. 1 Chron 16:8 O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever. 1 Chron 16:14 Therefore will I give thanks unto thee, O LORD, among the heathen, and sing praises unto thy name. Psalms 18:49 I admit that there are days when giving thanks is a difficult task. The lost of a love one, lost of job, divorce and broken family relationships. I admit that there are days when giving thanks is a difficult task. The lost of a love one, lost of job, divorce and broken family relationships. Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place. Psalms 66:12 However, this is the true test of thanksgiving. Whatever circumstances you find yourself in you can be sure that God will bring you out. Can you still say "God you are worthy of the glory, love and honor"even when tears are
rolling down your cheeks? If you can still "give thanks" during these times God knows that it is coming from your heart and you really truly do love him. During those seasons of your life, he will surely send his comforter and wipe away your tears. Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be comforted. Just give thanks. In all things we are admonished to give thanks. For all things we are to give thanks. Through all things we are to give thanks. If we never experience any rain in our lives we would not fully appreciate the sunny days. If there were never any difficult days we would not appreciate the good days. If we never experience any lack in our lives we would not know that he is the good shepherd and in him there is no lack. If we never face sickness we would not know him as Jehovah Rapha our God that healeth us. Just give thanks.
