Great question isn’t it? If this is how things really worked we would all have to be much more thankful than we already are. As we approach the end of another year why not take some time to sit down and reflect on all the things we have to be thankful for. And then why not take some time to stop and tell God all about it.
As we make the transition from one year to the next St Paul’s words in Colossians chapter 3 are great advice and form the basis for a great prayer we would all do well to remember.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. Col 3:14-15.
Till next time. Andrew
