Happy Friday Saints.

1Thessalonions 5:18 “IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS; FOR THIS IS THE WILL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS FOR YOU.”

What are you grateful for in 2023? We are 16 days away from the New Year.

It has been a challenging year for many of us, but even with everything that happened, you can still find some things to be thankful for.

It’s easy to be negative and pessimistic, but if we are, we won’t notice everything that went well for us. And perhaps even worse, we won’t recognise our current blessings too.

Romans 8:28 says, “THAT IN ALL THINGS GOD WORKS FOR THE GOOD OF THOSE WHO LOVE HIM, WHO HAVE BEEN CALLED ACCORDING TO HIS PURPOSE.”

People who learn to count their blessings find that life’s challenges are less burdensome to overcome when their hearts are full of gratitude.

When you find things to be thankful for, your whole outlook begins to shift. You go from a sense of hopelessness to being filled with enthusiasm about your future.

God is good – ALL THE TIME. And He has been good to you in 2023. Don’t overlook the many ways that He has blessed you throughout the year.

Be thankful, and let your gratitude fill the remainder of this year and 2024 with hope.

Have a fabulous weekend, and finish 2023 strong! God bless, and lots’a love, Warren
