THANKFULNESS Challenge - 365 Days of Being THANKFUL

I challenge you to be thankful for something every single day! 

"Be joyful always;  pray continually;  give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Over the past year I have been writing a blog post everyday thanking God for something in my life - I challenge you to do the same!  You don't have to have a blog to take up this challenge - just write your "THANKFULness" statement down in your diary.  Everyday record something that you are thankful for on that day - it doesn't have to be some huge happening - being thankful in the small things is just as important as being thankful in the big life changing events!

"Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire."  Hebrews 12:28&29

Being thankful really is a way to worship God.  If you take up this challenge you will be amazed!  (I am not going to give you details just because it is so precious and private and everyone is different.  What I experienced might not be the same as what you experience).  Again, the most difficult part is going to be showing your thankfulness during difficult times - see the verse above: "acceptably with reverence and awe".   Accepting the difficult times knowing that God is in control and knowing that He has a purpose for everything!
