Thanksgiving: God’s Will for Us
Thanksgiving is one of the biggest holidays in America; all across the country people are going to be getting together, watching football, eating food and just hanging out. It’s seen as a day of thankfulness and community. In the Bible we see that giving thanks is something that matters a lot to God.
Did you know that living a life of thanksgiving is God’s will for all of us? That’s a huge deal! In order for us to live our best lives it’s important that we are thankful through it all. That’s the way God always wanted it to be!
Being thankful isn’t always easy; sometimes life is hard, people are hard to deal with and we may feel like we don’t have a lot of things to be thankful for. But the more we get to know God we get to see that everything that we go through is to make us better, and understanding this makes us grow more and more thankful.
So there is always something to be thankful about, no matter where you are in life and no matter what you're going through. A thankful heart will help you to get you closer to God and grow you into the great person you are destined to be!

“Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live.”
