Thankfulness

Yesterday was Thanksgiving, a day set aside for "giving thanks". And as the day went by I felt so unthankful. My thoughts were more on what I didn't have and what I want. Pretty selfish, right?
Last night I sat down to write in my diary, trying to pinpoint why I felt so guilty. Instead of counting my blessing I was listing what I didn't have, but in doing so I failed to see just what I have. But last night as I sat down to write, I realized ...I am so blessed!
So, today I AM very thankful for life, life everlasting. Salvation. But most of all for Who gave me life.
Jesus.
I have been blessed. I have family and friends. I have a home. All my needs are being met. I have a wonderful church family and I have freedom to worship.
Each and everyday we should be thanking God for what we have. I have for so long dwelt on things that I want from life. But God knows what I want, but most of all He knows my needs. If I am meant to have all the things I want than I will. In His Time.
Just wanted to post a reminder.

Be Thankful.

"Praise ye the Lord. O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever."
Psalm 106: 1

God Bless,
