2020 has been a tough year. It can be easy to loose sight of the true meaning for the season…Jesus!
Farmers have always stopped to give thanks for the blessings of a bountiful harvest. We too should stop and give thanks to God for all He has given us. We may not have everything we want but we are blessed.
How often in out lives do we feel unequipped or unworthy? If you feel weak, inadequate or ill-equipped for your task you are not alone. Throughout history brothers and sisters in Christ have struggled with the same feelings. But there is hope. Our heavenly father promises to equip us with everything we need for doing His will.
It seems that we live in dark times. Everywhere we look there is worry, fear, and sadness. There is a lack of joy and piece. There is a real fear of the unknown. If we let it, this darkness will overtake us, but it doesn’t have to be this way.
It is easy to sometimes forget how many blessings we have in our lives. Our lives are filed with friends and family who care deeply for us.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18
Life is not always easy, perfect or peaceful. But we can always have a heart full of thankfulness if we remember who gives us reasons to be thankful.
