13 Posts to help you Give Thanks

It’s that time of year when the “I’m thankful for” status’ pour out. Maybe things are going well and you are overflowing with gratefulness and cannot say enough. Or perhaps you are finding difficulty in being joyful and content where God has you.

Giving Thanks

I met a sweet friend on Instagram – barely knowing me, she knew of a need and sent us some clothes for our boy, just younger than her son. I knew she didn’t have much herself and it was a sacrifice. That was about 2 years ago and we know each other a bit more now.

I know things are extremely difficult for her still, but I see her. I see her grateful for being safe after a blown out tire, instead of complaining of the inconvenience and cost of it. Being glad of what she can make of the time lugging her family’s wash to the Laundromat, instead of annoyed with all the effort that it takes.

And this isn’t just in November, I have see an astonishing heart of gratitude year round. I convicts me, it cuts and it challenges me and calls me to be grateful for those things that the “bad times” can reveal.

If you’ve been felt silently called out, hopefully some of the ladies below will help soften and touch your heart to find God’s hand in all. His goodness even in the trials.
