I’M SO THANKFUL 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

Happy Thanksgiving! Wherever you live in this world, some particular day is often singled out by the governing authorities as a time to be thankful. More importantly, the Bible says to do so on a regular basis. As in daily. And often during each day. Just can’t be thankful enough, can we?

Unfortunately, I have to remind myself to thank Jesus for any blessing that comes my way. And there are many. Just breath itself. My wife and family and friends along with devotional writing that the Lord wants me to do for Him, for others. I’m thankful that I’m not doing this for myself. Or for money. Or for career advancement. None of the above.

I’m thankful simply to serve God. He could use much better than the likes of me. But here I am, nevertheless. I’m so thankful.

Take time, wherever you live, to thank God for whatever comes to mind. Don’t worry about using the right words or uttering some flowery speech. Be your thankful self, whom the Lord Jesus loves so much. Remember the words that St. Paul writes thousands of years ago that are as fresh as today’s news only more upbeat and encouraging–‘Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances, for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you’ (1 Thess. 5: 16-18).

I’m so thankful that so far in 2022, people from 56 different countries, from every inhabited continent, have been reading these devotionals. My prayer is that what’s been written and read will be to the glory of God Almighty and His Son Jesus Christ through the help of the Holy Spirit. And that you are growing in thankfulness to your Lord and Savior. Me too!

I’m so thankful that you’ve read this today. Happy Thanksgiving! Blessings always, John Fischer
