BLOG: I am writing this a little late. We have waiting and our patience has paid off. Dorian is finally moving away. The unwanted house guest has moved on.
We took a couple of hours to go out and check out the area and see how everyone else is doing. #1 Everyone is bored. There were a lot of people out and about. #2 If you are in the pizza business, you’re making a killing. #3 Everyone is thanking God that this monster didn’t make landfall.
That’s what I want to focus on for a few moments.
Ephesians 5:20 Giving thanks always and for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Paul, the Apostle who was beaten, imprisoned, flogged, and run out of town more times than I can remember says, Give thanks always.
We are thankful when God intervenes in our lives. But are we thankful for everything else?
Practicing a lifestyle of thankfulness ins’t easy. It is easy to gripe and complain. It’s easy to give God an earful. That isn’t to say that it’s wrong to vent. David did it all the time. But if you will read his Psalms he always came to the conclusion that God was his provider and protector in everything.
Remember, be thankful that Dorian didn’t do any more damage. But regardless of whatever happens, be find something to be thankful for.
PRAY: Dear Jesus, I am thankful. Amen.
