A person with a thankful heart recognizes waking up to a new day is a blessing. It is a gift from God.

He praises the Lord instead of complaining. He knows people are praying for the things he has and that his circumstances could be worse. 

A person with a thankful heart has joy. The joy of Jesus.

He tells the Lord, "Thank You." Not only because of stuff or for what the Lord has done does he thank Him, but just because of who He is.

It is good to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And Your faithfulness every night,
On an instrument of ten strings,
On the lute,
And on the harp,
With harmonious sound.
For You, Lord, have made me glad through Your work;
I will triumph in the works of Your hands. Psalm 92:1-4

Happy Thanksgiving!

Be blessed.

Whether we like it or not, seasons change. We can embrace the change or not, but still, it happens. We are forever learning in life and there is certainly something to be learned in each season we enter. 

I have learned to embrace the cycle. Some seasons lasts longer than others. That makes me really excited, especially when it seems everything is going my way and trouble has not found me. When a season brings trouble, I desire the power to press the fast forward button and slide into the next season. I cannot do that, so I flow with what God is doing in my life.

Instead of fighting against the turn of a new season, get excited about the chance to learn something new or to see life from a different perspective. 

To everything there is a season,
A time for every purpose under heaven:
A time to be born,
    And a time to die;
A time to plant,
    And a time to pluck what is planted;
A time to kill,
    And a time to heal;
A time to break down,
    And a time to build up;
A time to weep,
    And a time to laugh;
A time to mourn,
    And a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones,
    And a time to gather stones;
A time to embrace,
    And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to gain,
    And a time to lose;
A time to keep,
    And a time to throw away;
A time to tear,
    And a time to sew;
A time to keep silence,
    And a time to speak;
A time to love,
    And a time to hate;
A time of war,
    And a time of peace. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 

Be blessed.
