It's hard to believe that it's already November. Am I right?! The year has absolutely flown by!
As soon as November hits, we start seeing lots of posts, status updates, tweets, etc about things that we're thankful for. Even though we are thankful all year round, there's just something about the month that holds Thanksgiving that stirs up in us a desire to express our gratitude even more.
I was looking up some quotes about thankfulness and I found this one...
:: It's not happy people who are thankful,
but thankful people who are happy ::
How true is this?! I know in my own life, I find that I'm more happy when I'm thankful rather than complaining. Funny how that works!
There are several things that I want to talk about this month that I'm thankful for, but the first one is the Lord. I don't even want to imagine where I'd be without Him. Not only has He saved my soul, but He is with me guiding me and directing me every day. Seriously, how do people go through life without Christ? He's all I need!
He loves me when I'm unlovable. He gives me mercy when I don't deserve it. He gives me grace to get through the hard stuff. He gives me peace that surpasses all understanding. There is such joy in knowing the Lord!
What about you? Do you know the Lord and the joy that He brings?
