Thankfulness, Create the Habit ~

So begins the month of posting something we are thankful for daily on Facebook.
Of course, we should be living a life deep in thankfulness daily.
Somehow typing it out everyday of November is good for creating 
 the habit of thankfulness if you are one who has not yet created the habit.

I encourage giving it a try if you aren't already,
its great for removing oneself from a pity party we 
may have invited ourselves to. 
Putting the focus on all that one should be thankful for,
 often times shrinks the size of the proverbial  mountain,
 formerly known as the molehill.
Granted your molehill may be one of a more serious nature,
there is still room for thankfulness. 

No where in the Bible does it say we should save our thankfulness for a particular season of
the year, but instead, it teaches we should express it constantly in speech and action.

"Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks 
through Him to God the Father."
Colossians 3:17
God wants to meet our needs, he tells us many times throughout scripture to petition Him with our requests.
He came to meet our needs, emotional, physical and spiritual.
Often in times of trial, we tend to respond in the form of self-pity, anxiety and resentment,
 it seems justifiable to do so!
That my friends is when Satan is attacking those very vulnerable places in our hearts, 
which then threatens our confidence in God.
His attempt is to get us to focus on what seems to us,
an overwhelming situation.

I hope you will attempt to make a practice of thanksgiving regardless of the season.
Thankful for each of you!
It's what echos from my heart today.


  1. I try to practice thankfulness every day but this time of year definitely reminds us. :)
