Give Thanks

"Oh, give thanks to the LORD!Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!" (1 Chronicles 16:8 NKJV) I did a search of giving thanks, in The Holy Bible. It gave me exactly 52 verses that said give thanks. I believe God planned that. He wants us to give thanks every single day and WEEK for our blessings, and His gifts to us. God wants us to take time to remember what all we have to be thankful for, especially in these times when there is so much negativity in the world. Mom has a big saying, and belief, that says, "If you don't take time to be thankful, God gave it to you and He can just as easily take it away from you." So, this week I want you to take just 5 minutes to think about 5 things you are thankful for, and then tell God how thankful and appreciative you are for them. And, one more footnote, the last part of this Bible verse states "make known His deeds among the peoples." Not only are we supposed to stop and be thankful, but we are also supposed to SHARE WITH OTHERS what God has done for us. This is called witnessing! So, go out and share after those 5 minutes! Love, Beau
