“Most people think that God asks ordinary people to do extraordinary things, and He does at times. But most of the time He asks extraordinary people to do very ordinary things.”     

David and Jason Benham

Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

Duty

 

    “Duty is ours, results are God’s”  

(John Quincy Adams)   

 

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.   For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:8-9

Day 30

To whom am I thankful?

Not my lucky stars, because I don’t think stars are lucky to begin with.

My thanks goes to the one who made those beautiful stars.

What Christ gave me was the greatest gift ever.

I am so unworthy of this gift and His love, but I am so grateful for it. And it is to Him that all my gratitude goes.

I am thankful to him for all the things I have listed in the past month. He gave me friends, family, joy, sunshine and the ability and reason to be thankful. 

Because of Jesus, I CAN give thanks in everything.

 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalm 34:1

I hope you have enjoyed this month of blog posts.

I encourage you to try it yourself.

Everyday for the next month find something new to be thankful for. Being thankful is not just for one day in November.

Thanksgiving Day is just a day set aside to remind us.

 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

Romans 8:28
