“Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Oh this video. I cry every time I watch it . It literally stops me in my tracks and humbles me to my knees. Just Watch and you’ll see what I mean…
*This was shown during our church service last Sunday. Oh, how I love that church.
So, the other day:
I walked into my son’s room and stepped on a Lego. OWCH! Those things hurt! After my first reaction of “displeased” passed, I sat in my “Thanksgiving chair” for just a moment…”Lord, you have blessed me and my family with so much that I am literally tripping over things..I’m so grateful.”
The alarm rang at 6 am in the morning. Ugh. Mornings!!! I’m so comfortable right now, I don’t want to get out of bed!!! It seriously cannot be time to get up right now-it’s dark! The kids will fight me, the furry begins… I then looked over at my sleeping husband, got out of bed, and sat in my “Thanksgiving Chair”. “Lord, my husband works hard to support our family, I get to stay at home, my children get to go to a Christian school, my body is healthy…I am SO grateful.
I was thinking about how the Holidays have changed in my family…loved ones have moved, divorce has effected us, deaths…things aren’t the same anymore. Then, I sat in my “Thanksgiving Chair”…”God you have given me some great memories to look back on, and some amazing people to share my life with now. But most importantly, you gave me your Son Jesus Christ. I’m eternally grateful. I don’t even know how blessed I am.
How many times can you sit in the Thanksgiving Chair today? Try it…I dare ya 😉
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!!!!
