1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
I am thinking of Kay (Transformer Kay) when I read these words today. We always have so much to be thankful for. God gave us free will, and one of the ways we can exercise that free will is to spend time in prayer and thankfulness. It is common for me to focus on small (or large) worries. I could just as easily focus on thankfulness.
Lord God, You are so generous and patient. I thank you for this day, for the work I have to do, for the sunshine and the beginning of Spring. All of these things come from you. I am yours. Amen
