Throughout the book of Psalm we are told to give thanks to God.
"Give thanks to the Lord for he is good; his love endures forever."
"I will give thanks, for you have answered me you have become my salvation."
"The Lord is my strength and my shield my heart trusts in him and I will give thanks to him in song."
What are you thankful for ?
Even though it's not Thanksgiving we should give thanks everyday and today is a great time to start!
Some people withhold praise and thanks to God when he has blessed them. Some people only praise and thank God when they want something from him. Sometimes we don't realize how blessed we are to have something till its gone. Sometimes we don't understand our parents or relatives until they go out of town or move and you realize how they helped you so much. Sometimes we fail to thank God for the simple things He has blessed us with. For example, we realize how much help it was to have a dishwasher when it breaks, you realize how much help it was to have it.
Sometimes instead of thanking God for who he made us to be we complain about how "Oh I hate my hair or I have a funny nose or I'm fat or I don't look like a model." Whoever said you had to be like that? Why try to change the beautiful creation God has made you! Just be thankful that you have a body that is healthy and nothing is really wrong with you. It's just how you see your self. It doesn't matter if your nose is weird or hair is frizzy or your a bit overweight--because you should just be thankful you are alive! Psalm 139:14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
Even when life isn't perfect, even if your day doesn't turn out right--
still thank God for every minute you have with your friends and family and just enjoy life!
