THANKFULNESS Challenge from God's Growing Garden

Thanksgiving is only a few weeks away which makes this perfect timing to present my challenge to you.  This is my 20th "Contributing Angel post" (Thank you  again to my friend Angel for allowing me to contribute to your amazing blog!).

Over the past year, I have been writing a "THANKFUL" post every single day and I have been thanking God for something in my life.  I have almost completed one year and it has been an enlightening and healing experience.  The most difficult time to be thankful is of course when one is going through a difficult time - but that is the situation when I received the most healing from God. 

"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

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!
