Think on These Things Thursday

Philippians 4:8--Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things.
Most human beings have an almost infinite capacity to take things for granted. Aldous Huxley
This quote really made me stop and think. It is so easy to take things for granted. I would make a list of all the things I take for granted, but I am pretty sure it would be hugely incomplete. So often, we find ourselves bent out of shape about something, but if we stopped to think we really should be thankful for how good we've had it up to this small bump in the road. If we made a list of all the things we have to be thankful for it would FAR outweigh any difficulties we have in our lives.
I Thessalonians 5:18--In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
This verse does not say that we need to be thankful for everything, but rather that in any situation we can find something to be thankful for. Remember that God is always going to be in control. :o)
