The devotional I read this morning reminded me that "thankfulness takes the sting out of adversity." Giving thanks opens our hearts to God's presence. It also opens our minds to the Spirit working inside us.
Some good scripture related to giving thanks:
Always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
We sing a song at church:
"Give thanks with a grateful heart, give thanks to the holy one, give thanks because he's give Jesus Christ his Son..."
I pray for all of you as you discover you "thanks" each day.
