Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Give thanks in all circumstances, we’re told. Imagine how different life would be if we did!

Every day in Christ is a resurrection from death, every rising sun a reminder of His greatness and goodness. A heart filled with gratitude is joyful, humble, constantly aware that we have received so much more than we deserve.

And as we consider our greatest blessings – church, family, country – we remember that these blessings are signs of our Father’s great love for us. Because He loves us, we are thankful that we can show His love to others and see what happens!
