• How many blessings do you think God sends your way every day? No need to be precise; you can just round to the nearest million.

• What keeps you from saying “thank you” to God as much as you should?

And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Colossians 3:17


Every day is Thanksgiving for a Christian—at least, it should be. We certainly have more than enough to be thankful for. We don’t need to look far for God’s blessings in our lives. They’re all around us: a place to live, a loving family or someone to care for us, supportive friends, food to eat, clothes to wear, assorted talents and abilities, the security of knowing we’ll go to heaven when we die—just to name a few.

We have the material for a 365-day Thanksgiving celebration, but do we have the desire? After all, life gets busy. More important things come up. Right?

Actually, they don’t. If we’re serious about our relationship God, nothing is more important. We just need to rethink our schedules. How can we carve a little time out of every day to think about what God has done for us and tell him how much we appreciate it? One idea is to keep a running conversation. As good things come up, we can thank God for them. When we solve a problem or do well on a test, we can thank him for our reasoning skills. When we go to church, we can thank him for living in a place where we are free to worship him.

We can learn to appreciate every moment—and share our appreciation with the One who made it possible.

PRAYER

Dear God, we praise you for the blessings you pour into our lives every day. If we were to list them, there would not be enough time in the day to get them all named. Thank you for taking care of us. Let us never lose sight of what you’ve done. Amen.
