Sunday Reflections

Sing... to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything.
Ephesians 5:19-20

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching we think of giving thanks for our many blessings. It is good to be thankful at Thanksgiving but we should be thankful all of the time.

No matter what the source of the evil confronting you, if you are in God and completely surrounded by Him,  realize that it has passed through Him before coming to you. Because of this, you can thank Him for everything that comes your way. This does not mean thanking Him for the sin that accompanies evil, but offering thanks for what he will bring out of it and through it. May God make our life one of continual thanksgiving and praise, so He will then make everything a blessing.

  1. Hi Annette... i like it when u said "it has passed through Him before coming to you" its so true and is an absolute reason for us to be thankful for whatever comes our way.

  2. Thank you for stopping by my blog! Love the Thanksgiving season and counting all my blessings. When you do that it sure makes the little annoyances of life seem small.

  3. A very thought-provoking post. Wishing you a blessed Sunday.

  4. "May God make our life one of continual thanksgiving and praise!" Amen!

    Have a beautiful day!

  5. Happy Sunday and He does make everything the best...

  6. It is a comfort to know God works all things out for good. I also take comfort in the verse that tells us we give thanks in all circumstances...not for them....because we know that He is with us in the middle of every trial. Thank you for such a thoughtful post.

  7. Wonderful post. Thanks so much for sharing it.
    Have a blessed Sunday!

  8. Amen, Annette. Thank you for sharing these timeless truths.

  9. Amen! Thanksgiving and praise is what God desires to hear from His children.

    Psalm 116:17 (King James Version)
    I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
