"Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

1 Thessalonians 5:18

While reading the study notes to this verse I came across these words:

...in all circumstances...

It is very easy ( i hope ) to be thankful for the many blessings in ours lives...family, a home, food, and the simple things we take for-granted like running and drinkable water.I give thanks to God daily for my husband, my children, my family, and God that loves me...but am I always thankful in all circumstances? I try to be, but I feel it is human nature not to be.

What better way to start the Holiday season off with Thankfulness...

...in all circumstances...

even the ones we don't like.

Hope you all have a safe & happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!

True dat! I'm so thankful that I have everything I need and then some. And thankful that God uses my abundance to bless others in need. That's the whole point of having extra, isn't it??

It's easy to forget God's hand in all things, and important to remember that we really do have him to thank for everything!

Hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving!

thank you for your thoughts on thankfulness in ALL circumstances! it is so easy to become wrapped up in life (in general) that we forget to give thanks ALWAYS!!!
Have a blessed holiday sweet friend!
