Thankful Thursdays

For unrealized blessings. Can one run out of things for which to be thankful? Never. We can pass our days muttering to ourselves a bunch of thank-yous, for big things and little things; good things that happened and bad things that didn’t. Even if yesterday we were thankful for our health, or our kids, or our mother-in-law’s cooking, or for that boring job that pays our bills, we can express gratitude for those things again today.

But, in case at some point our gratitude starts to feel repetitive (like maybe after 284 consecutive Thankful Thursdays postings…wink, wink), we can always be thankful for the blessings yet to come. That kind of gratitude and faith surely must nudge God to action on our behalves, no? Let’s not miss out.

What are you thankful for today?

“Perhaps it takes a purer faith to praise God for unrealized blessings than for those we once enjoyed or those we enjoy now.”
-A.W. Tozer

  1. Amen. Each day is a blessing from the moment we open our eyes till the time we lay our heads on the pillow for a night’s rest. All the blessings might not come in the way we contemplate them but only God knows what’s best for each of us. Trust in our Lord and he will bring you through it !❤

  2. Thank you, Connie! For the past few months, I have not felt a lot of thankful moments….been struggling with that. But you have just helped me to reawaken those feelings with your reminder that we must remain thankful for God’s blessings yet to come. Amen to that!
