As I was reading my bible yesterday, I stumbled upon a few verses in Colossians that reminded me to be thankful.
Col 2:7 – Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
Col 3:15 – And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.
Col 4:2 – Devote yourself to prayer with an alert mind and a thankful heart.
As I was vacuuming this afternoon with my little one following close behind as she always does when I vacuum, my mind was flooded with those verses from yesterday. I have so much to be thankful for. It’s so easy to get caught up in discontentment. At least for me anyway. I may always want a bigger house to live in, a nicer couch, a yard for my child and dog to play in, a new bed since ours is from my husbands high school days, etc, etc, etc… But, why waste my time feeling discontent over those things? I have a wonderful, Godly husband; a beautiful, healthy little girl; an amazing, merciful God who loves me; a roof over my head; food to eat; a car to drive: a job to help with the monthly income, wonderful friends, etc, etc, etc… I am so thankful!!
What are you thankful for today?
