Come, let us sing to the Lord! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come to him with thanksgiving. Let us sing psalms of praise to him. For the Lord is a great God, a great King above all gods.
Psalm 95: 1- 3
It is easy to live everyday through the eyes of negativity; never seeing the good in anything, nor having the reason or need to be thankful. It is easy to look at certain milestones in life from the view point of it being “half empty” as opposed to being “half full”. However, the bible tells us in1 Thessalonians 5:18to “Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus”.
To be thankful is defined as having the feeling or expression of gratitude. It means to be appreciative
To be expressive means to put thoughts into words and actions. To openly display how one feels
To show gratitude means todisplay the quality of being grateful and thankful. That is sincere thankfulness that comes from the heart.
To be appreciative means to show clear insight, intuition and knowledge. It is also to show the knowledge of wisdom for reasons and ramifications of being thankful.
In this season of THANKSGIVING, I encourage us all to cast aside, burdens, cares, desires, hurts and all and embrace the spirit of Thanksgiving and praise to the one how has kept you well and safe.
