Are you thankful for your “problems” and the “challenges” that are in your life? May I be bold enough to ask you to be appreciative of these items also? Having problems and challenges means you have options and choices. You have the ability to look at these issues with a variety of opinions and choices.
Here are some synonyms for “thankful”:
- Much obliged
Let’s go deeper and see what God has to say.
Because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
Have I become futile in my thoughts? Is my heart thinking foolish thoughts and being discontent? I hope not, but I am human and it happens sometimes.
And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
This Thanksgiving I am going to make a special effort to be more thankful for everything, my family, friends and challenges.
