Giving Thanks (Even When The Sky Is Falling)


Sometimes it can be hard to be thankful.

Amidst everything there is in life, giving thanks can be challenging. You or a loved one might be sick. A family member or friend may have gone down the wrong path. Maybe something didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to. Or you simply failed a science test.

It’s that time of year where the snow is starting to fall and people are getting ready for Thanksgiving celebrations. Maybe you’ve had yours already. Nonetheless, I thought it would be a great time to share my thoughts on thankfulness.

We’re in a Battle, but He’s Already Won


As Christians, we are fighting a battle. Right here, right now.

With constant peer pressure from friends, culture, movies, magazines, and books (just to name a few), being a follower of Christ can be a challenge. Daily, Christians are battling a war against Satan – with stealing, lying, disobeying – parents, teachers, idols – social media, tv shows, boys, fashion, food, and so much more. These things are pulling us away from the one who made us – and we need to fight back.
