What if...

Thankful.jpg

Am I thankful?  I like to think that I am, but every now and then I get caught up in comparing myself to others. 

Well, I ran across the question above and it stopped me in my tracks.  I mean, think about it. 

What IF you woke up today with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday?

What would you have and what would you miss?  Or the better question, who would you have and who would you miss?

When we get caught up in that “comparison game” or the “woe is me pity party”, we lose sight of all that we have to be thankful!  We begin to lose sight of how BIG and AWESOME our God is!

I have found that when I start getting the mulligrubs, I need to look up and thank God for all the ways He has blessed me.  After being thankful for my salvation, I’m thankful for people!  That list can get pretty long…family, friends, acquaintances and more.

Then the praise starts!  After all, what a God who desires a relationship with us!  How awesome is that?  When mankind, you and I, could have cared less, He cared for us.  And He proved it by sending Jesus to pay a debt we could never pay so that we might become His sons and daughters! Hallelujah!

So today, take a few minutes and consider the question.

What IF you woke up today with only the things that you thanked God for yesterday?

Grace and Peace to you as you count your blessings,

 

“Always giving thanks for all things in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God, even the Father”  Ephesians 5:20
