~ Thankful Thursday ~

I love Thursdays, I enjoy writing and reading posts that are all about the positive things in life. At church this month, Pastor Pat challenged us to make November a "no complaint month." This might sound easy, or it might sound hard - it depends on how much you complain! To me, it did not sound too easy! It makes since though, and I love the idea. If we spend all of our time being thankful, grateful, appreciative of what Christ did for us - all the He went trough being mocked, tortured, and crucified - how can we say anything other than Thank You Lord!
It seems like when I fall into a mood where I want to complain about things, I am most certainly NOT thinking about what Jesus did. So the challenge is to think more about God and how much He loves us, think about the choices that Jesus made that proves His love for us; and then what is there to complain about? I love it! If you need help remembering to think about Jesus rather than the events that make you want to complain, try something simple like tying a piece of red yarn on your wrists.
I am thankful for this reminder.
I am thankful of all the things I have to be thankful for!
I am thankful that you are taking the time out of your life to read this, and pray that you are thankful as well! Have a great Thursday ~ be Blessed!


  1. Amen! I agree with you though - a tough challenge to keep but definitely something to strive for. May our days be full of praise and not complaints...focusing on the Lord and not our problems. Thank you for visiting me today! Have a blessed day!
