Always Thankful

Home > Pastor's Blog > Always Thankful

November is a time for us to consider the blessings that God had granted us over the course of the last year. We take time to celebrate those blessings with friends and family. Our moments of remembrance and communal acknowledgment of God’s blessing in our lives is something special. This is a great practice and part of me wonders what it might be like if we did this more often.

“16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Scripture encourages us to always be celebrating what God is doing and in constant communication with Him about what is going on in our lives. We are to give thanks at all times, recognizing what God has given us and thanking Him for His power and presence in our lives. God’s will for us is a continual stream of communication and connection with Him. To understand that we were created to have that kind of intimate relationship with God is a pretty powerful thing. As we move into this season of Thanksgiving, let it be only the beginning of this process and practice of communicating with God that we are grateful for all He does for us, not just one day or one month a year, but every day of every month of the year.

What are you thankful for today?
