Do you know what your calling in life is? Has it changed over the years? Do you think that there are some callings that don’t ever change?
Here we are in the weeks between the Canadian Thanksgiving (October) and the American Thanksgiving (November). During this Thanksgiving season, I think about the many things I am thankful to God for, the many near-misses He has delivered me from (some of the “saves” are probably unknown to me until I get to heaven), and the wonderful blessings that God has poured out on us as Christians. Blessings to overflowing, and blessings upon blessings.
Which leads me back to my initial question. Dear friend, what has God called you to do? In your own heart, do you know if you’re closer to achieving it or if you’re still struggling along?
Regardless of our individual callings, God has called us to be thankful:
“In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” (I Thessalonians 5:18).
As I was thinking about being thankful to God as I press on toward His upward call for my life to write Christian books, I made a list of three points of thankfulness:
- Always thank God.
- Always praise God.
- Always remember God.
Regardless of how far along we are in our journey, we can go so much farther if we are thankful to God for everything. When we obey God, we have peace, and our hearts are filled with gratitude.
What are you most thankful for? Whom are you most grateful for? Feel free to comment.
If you’re the USA, I wish you and your family a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving coming up at the end of the month!
Giveaway: Of all the books I’ve written, I only have two books that are set in the fall (autumn) season. Reach for Me (Vacation Sweethearts Book 2) begins in the Great Smoky Mountains when the beautiful flaming colors of fall have swept across the mountains. Cherish You So (Savannah Sweethearts Book 4) has a few scenes set in the same region, when my main character goes camping with her father at a mountain campground. In any case, I would like to give away one of these two ebooks to a random winner who comments. You can pick whichever ebook you would like to read.
Happy Thanksgiving again! To the rest of the world, you know what they always say: Everyday is a day of thanksgiving!
Thanking Jesus Christ for saving me,
