Thanksgiving Countdown Challenge Devotion T(hanksgivng) -24
There are 3 things God wants for us in all aspects of life:
- To have joy in all things;
- To pray without ceasing;
- To be grateful no matter what.
While this may seem simple, it really isn’t. There are times when it’s hard to be joyful, to rejoice. Sometimes, we’re having a really bad day, especially during the Holidays & we simply don’t feel all that joyful. We get busy, wrapped up in life & we don’t think to pray. We always think we’ll get to it later but later never comes. A whole day goes by without us talking with the Lord. Not good. As far as giving thanks in all circumstances, well, forget about it. When nothing seems to be going right, it’s impossible to be grateful. Sure, we know there are others that have it worse but that mean nothing when our world is falling apart around us, or so it seems.
Still, as we begin the busy Holiday season, it’s incredibly important for us to remember to focus on these 3 things throughout the day, every day. They help us keep our balance & sanity. They enable us to remain strong in all aspects of life. Most important, they allow us to celebrate with joy & thanksgiving with the Lord all season long.
