Are you thankful? 

By Todd Barrier  

George Washington proclaimed the first nationwide Thanksgiving celebration in the U.S. marking November 26, 1789, “as a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God,” and calling on Americans to “unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions.”
Thanksgiving means many things to many people but its beginnings in our country was to set aside a day for our nation to thank God for His many blessings. What a wonderful thing that is. It probably has a lot to do with how blessed our nation has been for 246 years. How thankful, as a child of God, are you? Do we dwell on the many negative things in this life or do we think about and thank God for our blessings? The Bible says in 1 Thess. 5:18 to be thankful in all circumstances. Why is this? Why are we to thank God all the time? Simple, He’s always there even in those times where it’s difficult to see the blessings. Psalm 107:1 says “He is good and His love endures forever. Are you thankful for Him every day?
