With Thanksgiving being only a few days away I began to think, how many days do we go throughout the year never taking a moment to recognize the blessings in our lives? How many days do we let pass without saying “thank you” to our heavenly Father?

God has given us an innumerable amount of things to be thankful for, such as:

Mercy –  “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. 1 Chronicles 16:34

Abundant life – “..I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10 

Healing – “Who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” 1 Peter 2:24 

Love and everlasting life – “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 

Jesus’ intercession for us – “Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” Romans 8:34

Provision – “And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 

God’s blessings are all around us, don’t overlook them! Every single day we should wake up with thankfulness in our hearts because our heavenly Father has redeemed, healed, and provided for us beyond anything we could earn or deserve. 

Let us all make it our aim to never let a day go by without expressing our gratitude to our heavenly Father!
