Thankfulness

“The LORD is compassionate and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in love. 
. . . he does not treat us as our sins deserve
or repay us according to our iniquities.”
Psalm 103:8, 10
In this season of Thanksgiving, it is good to remember what we have to be thankful for.  When it is difficult to find things to be thankful for, it is especially helpful to take the Lord’s perspective.  Instead of telling ourselves: “I don’t deserve this difficulty.”  “Why is life so hard on me?”  “I have a right to be treated better than this.”  or even “I’ve earned this through my own accord.”  Take a second look.  We are only here because of God.  We would not have breath in our lungs if it were not for the Lord.  Far beyond that and out of God’s incredible love for us, God sent his only Son to die for OUR sins.  We deserve far worse than we recieve.  God has been nothing but good and faithful to us, even when we are not good or faithful to Him.  Take the Lord’s perspective this Thanksgiving.  Then, remember to thank Him.
