Good morning Community Church,

Recently I have been reflecting on the idea of thankfulness/being thankful.  Reflecting on thankfulness and/or being thankful for things is a spiritual discipline.  It is something that requires effort and proactivity.  
One of the verses that I have included in my reflection is 1 Thessalonians 5:18 - " . . . give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."  Here, Paul says something profound.  Essentially he says that if we are not thankful in all things that we are not in God's will for our lives.  Wow - that is pretty serious!  We may not always be aware of the totality of God's will for our lives, but we can be sure we are walking in it if we are being thankful  in every aspect of our lives.

Let me encourage you today to take a second and think about something you might be thankful for.  Today is the day to start the new spiritual discipline of thankfulness.  When you do, God's will for you will be largely fulfilled!
