Some Things I'm Not Thankful For

A little boy was asked to say the prayer at Thanksgiving dinner. After thanking God for the food and his family, he ran out of things to say. Then he prayed, “Now let me tell you some things I’m not thankful for.”

It seems even as adults that many of us run out of "things to say" when it comes to our blessings, but few of us run out of things to complain about.

Most people separate everything into two categories—the things we are thankful for and the things we aren’t thankful for. But God says that we need to combine everything into one category and give thanks for all of it.

I Thessalonians 5:18

In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

I pray that you never run out of things to thank God for, no matter what your current circumstance may be. He loves you and so do I.

I love you all,
