As we prepare to celebrate Thanksgiving in a few weeks, I want to share a few ways in which we can give thanks even amidst hard times:
- Accept God's Grace : Regrets and remorse are part of the fabric of life but God uses all of the events in our lives to conform us to the image of His son, Jesus Christ. Understanding and accepting God's mercy is vital to moving through past regrets. When we accept God's forgiveness and plan for our life we are able to give thanks for all the wonderful things that surround us.
- Flex Your Faith Power: All of us worry or feel anxious from time to time. Life is about the future. And there are only two ways to approach the future: with fear or with faith. Give thanks for your faith. A faith in a God who will give you a prosperous future.
- Allow God to Heal Your Wound: God works best in our weakness -- the kind of weakness that means being completely pliable, completely transparent, completely abandoned in the hands of God. Give thanks that God has the ability to transform your life in ways you cannot imagine.
