Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.” -Psalm 136:1 (NIV)

A few months ago, I entered into a stage of my life where I felt like I was in a constant battle and everything was an uphill climb. But sisters, my world changed in a matter of moments all because I simply gave thanks.

We are called to be thankful in all circumstances of our lives. When we praise and give thanks to our incredible Jesus, we are ridding ourselves of the very thing the devil is trying to hold us down with. When we give thanks, we receive blessing. When we choose to focus on the good things, we actually reap the benefit of the blessing by just feeling full again.

There is nothing more beautiful than the feeling of pure, genuine thankfulness. Our God wants us to live a life full of abundance and relentless joy. He wants us to recognize His work and praise Him for everything.

I look at characters of the bible like Job, David, and Paul, all God-honoring men who poured their heart and souls out to God with thankfulness. They were faced with awful circumstances, yet still they were able to walk out their day covered in crazy, unexplainable peace, simply because they were thankful. 

My prayer for you is to always have a thankful heart, that no matter what you are facing, you choose God and you trust wholeheartedly that you belong to Him, the King of the world. 

"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." -1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
