Think On These Things Thursday

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
I Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
We are commanded over and over again in the Bible to be thankful. It is so easy to get busy with the things of life and to forget to be thankful for all the Lord has done for us. I'm making an effort to be more thankful and have started a thankful mug at work. It is amazing how looking for things to be thankful for can change your perspective. (Don't you think God knew this and that is why He commanded us to be thankful. Also, He wants us to remember that He is in charge, not us.) You can have difficulties, but always find other things to be thankful for. If nothing else, we can be thankful for the character building experience. :o) Some have told me I'm already ENOUGH of a character, though. :o)
