"Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;" Ephesians 5:20
I am so completely failing at this. Notice the word "all". We are to be thankful for everything. It's easy to be thankful for the blessings like family , home, and food. It's not so easy to be thankful for stress and sickness and financial burdens. God can use everything in our life to teach us and if we respond correctly (with thanksgiving) then he can use us for a witness and example to others. I will strive to feel and express more thanks.

Well, every time I pray I always say thank you for family, pets, food, water, shelter, ect. I thank God for everything he has blessed me with. I think it helps me have a better day when I think of all the thing I am blessed with. And one of them is this site! Jordyn ;D
