We are to give thanks to God for all He has done for us this season and over the course of our lives. The holidays mark the end of a year and the beginning of a new one. We will celebrate family, friends, and loved ones. There is so much to be thankful for. Many people that started this year with us are no longer here. God has carried us through the year. He has covered all the circumstances we faced and even those we are still facing. You are not alone on this journey called life. God is our fortress. He is our solid foundation.
Sometimes it’s hard to be thankful when we are faced with unfortunate circumstances during the holidays. I know this all too well because two years ago I spent the holidays in the hospital. I brought the new year in while being in the hospital. I thought God where are you? I thought He had forgotten all about me. I will not take the holidays for granted. Being with those you love during this season is a gift. No matter what you are facing this holiday season God has not forgotten about you.
The seasons come and the seasons go but God always remains. We change as we should but God remains constant and consistent. His grace and mercy are always with us. As we celebrate with big, small, or even alone remember God is with you. Let’s be thankful for all He has brought us through down through the years.
I hope you fill your hearts with gratitude and your bellies with delicious food. I wish all my blog readers a blessed holiday season. Remember you can face anything with God.
