I Thank My God
Philippians 1:3-4 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine making request for you all with joy…
Whenever Thanksgiving comes around I start going down a mental list of all the wonderful people God has placed into my life. From the time of my first breath God has surrounded me with loving family, friends, and Christian brothers and sisters.
Of course I thank my God for my wonderful wife. I can’t imagine what life would be like without her. I thank my God for my parents, my brother and his massive family, my grandparents, my aunt and uncle as well a plethora of cousins, and all their families. I am a blessed man, and I thank my God for family.
As a teacher and coach I was blessed to have MANY people, both adults and children, come and go in my life; some for only a short time and others to become lifelong friends. I thank my God for friends.
And then there are all the people God placed in my life through the church. Many loving brothers and sisters in Christ have crossed my path over the years and I thank my God for all of them.
I’m sure most of you feel the same way. You have family, friends, and fellow believers God put into your life, maybe for a short time or maybe for a lifetime. But in every case those people are gifts, and we should always be thankful for gifts. Who do we thank for all those loving people, all those gifts? I thank my God for them upon every remembrance. So should you.
Have a God Filled Week,
