With Thanksgiving this week, our thoughts are often attuned to the blessings in our lives. We think about all that God has done for us. And if we're lucky we think about it all month long. I don't know if your Facebook feed has been full of the Days of Thankfulness like mine has. That's all well and good, but November shouldn't be the only time we concentrate on our blessings.
And if I'm being honest, I tend to spend more time asking God for what I don't have or other requests instead of thanking him for what he has done.
"We Are So Blessed" is a classic song that really makes me stop and remember how blessed I am and how much God has given me.
Just can't understand why You loved us so much.
We are so blessed, we just can't find a way or the words that can say
Thank You, Lord, for Your touch.
"When we're empty You fill us 'til we overflow
When we're hungry You feed us, and cause us to know.
We are so blessed, take what we have to bring,
Take it all, everything, Lord, we love you so much."
I certainly don't understand the love of God and why He loves us the way He does. But I am certainly thankful that He loves us unconditionally. I'm thankful for His many blessings, and the reminder of how much He has given me. I pray that not just around Thanksgiving, but year long, I'll concentrate a lot more on the blessings and be sure to thank Him for what He's done more often.
