How to Stay Thankful All Year Long

Thanksgiving Day is behind us.

Refrigerators are full.

Family came and went.

A nephew happily taller than his aunt

A day of thanksgiving suddenly turns into a season of giving.

And we still struggle to stay thankful all year long.

Jerry Bridges gives this secret:

 “[God] doesn’t owe me anything, and what He has given me was given by His grace alone.” (from Transforming Grace)

How do we stay thankful all year long?

By remembering who we are.


Yet full.

"What do you have that you have not received? . . . 
Every one of us is given grace." (1 Cor. 4:7; Eph. 4:7)
