In Everything Give Thanks

Giving thanks is such a big idea in the Bible. Giving thanks is an act of the will and obedience more than an act from our emotions. Some times we "feel" thankful and give thanks and other times we don't. Either way, when we give thanks, it is saying, "God, you are good and I trust you in this circumstance, even though it does not "feel" good.

This Thanksgiving, practice giving thanks in every circumstance...good, hard or ugly. God is working it all out...in His way...and will make all things beautiful...in His time.
