Giving thanks even in times of trouble.

1 Theselonians 2017

1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)

18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

We all have heavy burdens to bear at sometime in our lives as soon as we have contact with other people. From as a child being harassed and bullied in school, to when we are teens from peer pressure, to when we meet the one we marry and need to carry more responsibilities than we ever would conceive as a child because we wanted to be a grown up. Never knew what we were heading into until we step right in it.

As we grow older , we remember when we were younger and did not know what a blessing it was to be  child in a happy home. We did not know as for when you get older and have more independence that the independence would mean you will have to depend on GOD and His son Jesus more and more with every waking day. And to depend on what you are able to do with GOD leading you.

I thank GOD for every single blessing that HE has granted me through my whole entire life long…..

For having a GODly family that feared and loved the LORD, that taught me about salvation and what the meaning of the cross is. It is where our savior gave His life so we can live with Him in heaven.

For having good health,

For keeping me and all of my loved ones safe and sound,

For always leading me right,

For  loving me so, that HE sent HIS only begotten son here on this earth to save the souls of ALL mankind who do believe in HIM

For blessing me so,

For never leaving me. Letting me know that HE is always with me.

For giving me comfort in trying times,

For giving me the strength, wisdom, discernment, confidence and patience I need to live on HIS earth with no fear. For GOD did not give us the element of fear, and I do so trust in HIM.

For JESUS as my savior.

Here are scriptures we can read on giving thanks on this site!

Ephesians 5:20

“Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;”

Psalms 106:1

“Praise ye the LORD. O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.”

King James Version (KJV)

I can go on, and on. And once we see that we have these blessings that are given to us we can make it through and need to stay closer to our heavenly FATHER. Oh I do thank you FATHER GOD for all that You have done and will do my whole entire life long.

I pray that you all have had a blessed thanksgiving day. It is not a religious day …but we can make it so with prayer and thanks to GOD. For we know were our blessings flow from.
