Outside, the air is crisp and cool, and some trees are turning their beautiful colors of yellow, orange, and red. It’s a beautiful time of year! Fall smells fill the air as fireplaces burn and families prepare for Thanksgiving Dinner, and it’s a happy time of year as we look forward to being with family and friends.
However, this year is different, and we all are trying to still make it work, as usual. What’s different about this year?
But we must still be thankful, and we CAN because God is still in control. He is our Savior, our Rock, our Guide, our Protector…our everything! We must continue to look to Him each day…all day. We must depend on Him, not ourselves. As Paul tells us in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Give thanks in all circumstances. For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
We must look for what we can be thankful for, in the midst of life today.
What are you thankful for this year?
