Hey guys! So with Thanksgiving coming up I thought that this month I would talk about being thankful. I have realized that I have been given such as amazing life, with the absolute best people to share it with, and I don’t always recognize that. I think that this bible verse perfectly sums about being thankful for me.
“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Jesus Christ”
1 Thessalonians 5: 18
I totally needed this bible verse! I have no trouble at all when Thanksgiving comes, because I can look at all my family and friends around me, and I KNOW that I have so much to be thankful for. But, in everyday life, I defiantly can be negative. Looking at the glass “half full” can be super hard to do! Especially when you feel down.
But here is the thing, God is ALWAYS there, a lesson I have been learning this year. He’s there when you put on all your makeup and straighten your hair, but he is also there when you have your hair in a messy bun and have more pimples than seemingly possible. He is there through it all, with his hand on your back, pushing you forward. And even when you are in seemingly “bleh” situations, he has a will for you, and he wants you to succeed.
So I challenge you this month. To look at the bright side of things, to see the good when it all seems lost, to love even when you want to turn to hate. Because that is how you live as a thankful Christian, by living EVERYDAY just thankful to be there.
Thank you so much for reading and have a blessed month!!
