"In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you."
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)
God, throughout your word it reminds me to present myself with a heart of thanksgiving. And today Lord I just want to say thank you. Your word says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18 that I am to give thanks in ALL things. I am thankful because, throughout all things in my life, you have remained faithful! Lord, you are good even when life is not.
I want to thank you for health, life, and breath in my body. I know that it is not by mistake that you have woke me up and allowed me to see another day. I thank you for clothing me in my right mind. I thank you for giving me a mind to get up and to serve you day in and day out. Lord, I thank you for the people in my life, and right now I pray a prayer of protection over all of them. I thank you that I have a roof over my head, clothes on my back and food in my stomach.
And Lord, most importantly, I want to thank you for my relationship with you. I thank you that even when things do not look or feel how I think they should, you are working things out for me. You are the driving force in all that I do and in who I am. And I ask that you continue to lead me and guide me, allowing me never to forget who you are in my life. Lord you are good, you are faithful, you are constant, and Lord I thank you. Amen!
