What it Means to Be Thankful

I had been up since 4:40am and was in the midst of a ten and a half hour work day. My legs felt like they were on fire and, because of the craziness at work, I hadn’t even had a chance to take a break for lunch.

As I walked out to head home I felt irritated. My legs hurt and I was exhausted. Being thankful was the last thing that was on my mind in that current moment.

I started to complain to myself and in a matter of seconds I managed to completely forget how God had blessed me with this unexpected internship at a company that I absolutely love and can see myself working with long term.

I had lost sight of the fact I had a group of amazing bosses that cared about me and took good care of me as an employee.

God commands us to be thankful in all circumstances {1 Thes. 5:18}

I don’t deserve have the job, I am blessed with one.

I don’t deserve to be alive, God gave me another day on earth.

Being thankful means doing more than simply posting our thanks for thirty days on Facebook. Being thankful means praising God in all circumstances, all the time.

Yes, we should rejoice in our creator when we feel confusion, loss, and pain. In hard times and the good times we should lift our hands high to our God because no matter what this life brings, we are blessed to be in community with the one who is in control and who’s love is never out of reach.

What does being thankful in all circumstances mean to you? From my family to yours, happy thanksgiving!
