What are you thankful for?

In the scripture it says that we should be thankful in all situations…and that being thankful IS GOD’S WILL!

Philippians 4:6-7 God says, “Hey, instead of worrying about everything…why not spend some time thanking me?”

I’ve noticed that if I spend more and more time thanking God for all He has done that I am less likely to worry about all that He is doing because, through thanksgiving, I understand that HE IS FAITHFUL!

We usually are thankful for great big things. We are thankful for a big house, a big car, a big diamond, or a long vacation. But even if we don’t have any of those things, there are many little things we can be thankful for throughout the day that we can be thankfull for…

Over the past week or two I’ve been think about how much I have to be thankfull for in my life….Even in the midst of  the biggest strom/trial I’ve ever been in; I can still be thankful

  • Salvation

  • The calling on my life

  • My amazing wife Kym…I would not know what to do with out her, she is my best friend and I fall in love with her more everyday.

  • I have been blessed to have the coolest son in the world…Kaden Jay Groves is one sweet dude!

  • Getting to watch the lives of people God has allowed me the opportunity to minister to “get it”

  • To see people fired up for Jesus

  • that my wife has now gone a whole year without having a car wreak!

  • For a house to live in

  • for good books

  • I have friends that I can depend on, friends that don’t just say they are there for you..They actual mean it!

  • To live in America the land of the Free and the home of the Brave

  • My health

  • Family

  • that dumb Yorkie of ours

  • air

  • The colts (even though they choked in the superbowl)

  • Braves baseball

  • Duke Basketball

  • cheesecake

The list could go on and on and on…But I think you get the pic..

Try it sometime…Sit down and write out a list of the things you have to be thankful for. I promise you, you will be amazed that the list just keeps growing and growing and growing!

God bless.
