Make this Thanksgiving Your Best Yet!
I bet you have some awesome Thanksgiving memories you can look back on as the best of times when things were perfect – just as they should be. You may also have some painful Thanksgiving memories that still make your heart sad when you think about them. Whatever your memories of the past, you can make this Thanksgiving the best yet!
Gratitude and contentment is the key to making the best of every situation and hope is the key changing the way you see things!
Hebrews 13:5 says, Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Don’t focus on what you don’t have; focus on what you do have. Don’t focus on who’s no longer with you; focus on the people God has given to be a part of your life in this season.
Count your blessing and give thanks with a grateful heart for where you are right now, knowing that God has a blessed hope and a beautiful future prepared just for you.
Romans 8:24-25 says, Hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance.
Anchoring yourself in the hope that, based solely on God’s promises will produce produces resolve and perseverance you need to keep on going and see the joy set before you (see Hebrews 12:2).
It gives you the contentment and peace you need to cherish your present moments and move forward in faith, being fully persuaded that God is able to work out the things you cannot fix by yourself. But establishing this kind of contentment in your life is a process. So don’t beat yourself up for feeling down if things aren’t yet what you are hoping for.
Paul said, I have learned how to be content with whatever I have. Philippians 4:11
Beloved, we all have to practice before we learn to be content with what we have. This Thanksgiving is a great opportunity to do just that – practice. You can shake off any feelings of discontent with thoughts of gratitude.
Just fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise, and keep putting into practice all you learned. Philippians 4:8-9
