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.
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.
