IN EVERYTHING GIVE THANKS
Dutch Farmers Pray at Sunset by Druidart
"Count your blessings, name them one by one. Count your blessings, see what God hath done", is the beginning of an old song we sang years ago, but the advice is still good today. In spite of the problems we each face daily, we are a blessed people and should be grateful - we ought not complain but rather give thanks. Remember, it could always be worse! So take time NOW and give thanks to your God and Creator - THANK YOU, LORD JESUS!

"Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men. See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men. Rejoice evermore. Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians 5:14-23

Philippians 4:6
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."

Colossians 2:7
"Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving."

Colossians 4:2
"Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;"

1 Timothy 4:4
"For every creature of God is good, and nothing to be refused, if it be received with thanksgiving:"

Psalm 95:1-3
"O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods."
