Ephesians 5:20 (KJV)
20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Sometimes we tend to take for granted all the blessings and comforts we have. At least I know I do. I get wrapped up in the day to day just expecting God to continue blessing me, and I forget to thank Him for all He does.
When I find myself in this position, I try to stop and remind myself to thank God. The best way I have found to keep myself on track is to journal. I try to keep a regular blessings journal listing everything, both small and big things, that God has done for me. When we write things down, we can remember them better. Going back and reading them is always a way to get us back on track.
Remember everything, even the trials we face is a gift from God. Next week we will talk about finding joy in our trials. Yes, it is possible to find that joy.
