As this is the first day of November and many of us are probably thinking about our Thanksgiving plans, I would like to encourage you to focus on thankfulness, and not just Thanksgiving Day.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
God has given me so many things to be thankful for, and instead of waiting till Thanksgiving to think about being thankful, why not take a little time each day this month and focus on being thankful in everything? Maybe even write down one thing each day that you are thankful for. This should help to shift our focus off of what we want, and onto the blessings we already have! I think this would be a good way to start the month off right, don’t you?
