Thankfulness

We’ve all had that day where nothing is going the way we feel it should. The coffee pot stopped working, the car ran out of gas, husband or wife isn’t pleased no matter what you do. Your boss has a bad day and is taking it out on you, or what you grabbed out of your pocket to pay for lunch was a sock instead of your wallet that was placed there during the laundry process. Then you’re sitting down thinking about your day and how bad it was and it’s like God speaks right to you. Turning on the TV you see a kid suffering from a terminal disease and could die at any minute, but has a smile on his or her face beaming with life! I always feel very unthankful after that. Here I am having a pity party about how bad I thought my day was. It can be extremely difficult at times to be thankful during days like these. I can get another coffee pot and afford gas because I have a job! I’m so thankful that God blessed my wife and me with a beautiful daughter that that sock belongs to. We have the opportunity to pray for our family when they aren’t having a great day. No matter what your day holds always remember that you have multiple blessings in it and all we have to do is look! Don’t let the bad keep you down there is so much better in this world than we think. Praise God! Psalms 100 verse 4- 5 enter into His gates with Thanksgiving, and his courts with praise. Be thankful to him and bless his name. For the Lord is good, his mercy is everlasting, And His truth endures to all generations.
