Gratitude

If you are just joining our blog, you may not understand what the numbers are. Check out the posts before on "One Thousand Gifts." We are counting our "gifts," all the things in life we are thankful for. All those gifts God gives. Even those we may not consider as such. We may have trials and tribulations, but in the end, turn out as gifts and blessings.
"And we know that God causes all things to work together
for good to those who love God, to those who are
called according to His purpose."
Romans 8:28
When you begin writing down what you are thankful for, God begins a work in you and then, you can't help but see all the blessings around. He is an amazing God, and His ways are good.
Remember,
"For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life,
and there are few who find it."
Matthew 7:14
Not only is the gate narrow that leads to life, but the way, the path we must follow is, as well. Christ's way is narrow, freeing us from all the voices and choices we hear from the world. Walking in His commands, and obeying His Word gives us the freedom to know how to live and how to have life abundantly. Keep God's Word at the forefront of everything you do. It is our rulebook for life.
Giving thanks in ALL things.
