Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and everyone is going to be writing about how thankful we should e or about how culture has taught us to buy more and more things with all of the Black Friday sales going on. People will be with their families which some will be thankful for and some will be thankful when they leave, but I would like to take a minute and just reflect on some scripture on thankfulness.
Just stop for one second, pause, and thank God for everything…yes everything, because He has given all to you, even the “bad” because all can be used for His glory. Take that second to thank Him and then read and reflect on these verses.
I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving with your friends and family and I’ll see you back on here next week:
