Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.
1 Thessalonians 5.16-18
I don’t know about you, but I take things for granted. I am blessed with a loving family, immense health, and most importantly, the freedom to worship and serve a God that loves me unconditionally. Sure, I go to church, and read my bible, and pray throughout the day, but what I don’t do, is appreciate all that he has blessed me with. It is so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of life without taking time to acknowledge that we aren’t entitled to those things; we have them because we are the child of a God who reminds us to be thankful, no matter the circumstances.
