With Thanksgiving 2020 quickly approaching, I have decided to celebrate all the many blessings I have received this year. Yes, this year. I’m going to pick one thing each day that I’m Thankful for and share it here with you just as I did with my posts Thank You notes to God.
My focus will be on one thing, one group or one place each day and I plan to reach out to all those I am grateful for. I hope you’ll follow me during my week of Thanksgiving, make your own list and share what you’re Thankful for as well. I think that it is especially necessary for us to focus on all the positives; the things we are blessed with each day… instead of all the things we may feel that have been taken away from us in 2020.
Our world has been altered but God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. We may feel we’ve lost all control but God is still in charge. We may have a difficult time seeing Him through all the much and mire that creeps ever closer to our door, but He’s still there. Hang on and look at all the evidence that He’s still in control..
The sun still rises and sets every day. It hasn’t flown off course.
The moon is still in place. It hasn’t bumped into the sun.
The trees still provide shade.
Flowers still bloom…and if there is snow on the ground where you are and temperatures have plummeted, be assured that Nature is resting and gathering strength for a fabulous spring.
Time hasn’t stopped, the things and people that truly matter still matter and God is still God.
Rivers still flow.
Waves still dance on the shores.
His Word and His Promises are still true and are there as an anchor in the storm.
So, be thankful in all circumstances and for all things… especially the little things that we don’t think about often.
So, in obedience to God’s command in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, today, I am thankful for the ability to write to you.
I am extremely grateful that I still have my mental faculties and my brain can still put thought into words.
I am thankful that I remember how to work my computer. When my husband was ill, the computer that he used every day became a foreign object to him, so I am grateful to still be able to navigate my way to this site and to you.
I am grateful that my brain still transmits messages to allow my words to flow through my fingers to this page and that my arthritis has allowed me to continue to do what I love to do, which is write.
Finally, I am thankful for the miracle of technology, which allows my words to float through cyberspace to your computer and hopefully into your mind and heart.
None of us that use technology to communicate our thoughts and faith to the world, would be able to reach as many people around the world if it was not for technology and the Grace of God.
THANK YOU LORD. For these and each of the many other gifts you have bestowed to me, I am forever grateful.
What are you grateful for today? Tell Him. I’m sure God’s anxious to hear from you.
Until Tomorrow…Peace and Blessings, VICTORIA
