What are you grateful for this Thanksgiving season? 2019

While you are setting the table for Thanksgiving, filled with lots of salads, bread, rice, wine, stuffing
cranberry sauce, butternut squash, gravy, pumpkin pie, Mashed Potatoes and the big thanksgiving turkey do not forget the essence of gathering together. 

We started with God at the beginning of the year and we must finish well by coming back to thank him for all that he has done.

This is the season of thanksgiving and it is a great season to be alive. It has been all God from the beginning of the year and to the end of the year 2019. God is always expecting thanksgiving. He looks forward to it. In the Bible, it was recorded in Luke 17:11-19 (Kjv) the importance of being thankful.

11 Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus travelled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. 12 As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance 13 and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!”

14 When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed.

15 One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. 16 He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan.




17 Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine? 18 Has no one returned to give praise to God except this foreigner?” 19 Then he said to him, “Rise and go; your faith has made you well.”

Ungratefulness is a big tool that can hinder you from getting the best from God. In all situations be thankful. A lot of people think or feel there are no reasons to be thankful in the year 2019, but we have lots of reasons to be thankful. Some people weren't even able to secure a job in 2019 but they never went to bed hungry, for some it's was divine healing. This is a season to thank God. God is expecting thanksgiving from everyone.

If you are still searching for reasons to be thankful here are 5 reasons to be thankful to God.

1. Be thankful for the disappointments

 There are stories of people who were supposed to board a flight and they did everything to get to the airport on time but weren't able to but a few minutes later they found out that the flight crashed few minutes after takeoff. Sometimes disappointment is a blessing and we might not understand it but it becomes clearer with time. Be thankful for those sad times that made you rediscover yourself. God is watching over us and for the disappoints he has set for us to be here today we should be thankful. When God delivers you from something and you don't give thanks to him, you are being ungrateful which might be because you feel that what God has done for you is nothing major. Some people think all that happened to them is by their power. 

2. Be thankful that you can blink

You never know how important the little things you have are until you lose them. Most times when we talk about Thanksgiving we write lots of things that involve money and provisions by God in general but we forget that there are people with money that can't solve their health issues. The fact that you can blink your eyes is too much reason to be thankful. Be thankful for good health.


3. Be thankful for food

 The same way you wake up and you just decided what to eat, is the same way someone else wakes up and picks from the floor to eat. Not everyone can afford food, people suffer and die from starvation but everyday, not one day did you sleep hungry, you have every reason to be thankful.



4. Be thankful for the peace you have

 In most countries, 2019 have been a very annoying year, full of wicked deeds. Kidnap became a normal thing, stealing a common practice and people suffered because of bad governmental systems. But in the midst of all this, it never came near you and if it did you survived it and you are still here, peaceful and happy. Be thankful that there is no war going on around you. Some people haven't done anything this year, they have been hiding in caves and hills, while some have become refugees in other countries with no hope of a better life they just want to survive and dream later.

5. Be thankful for nothing

 God doesn't have to do anything for us to keep his praises in our mouth but yet he has been faithful and done so much more than we deserve and for the unknown and known we have every reason to be thankful. Be thankful because if you thank him for what he has done he will do more. God loves a thankful heart.

God is waiting for our thanksgiving in 2019, let's end the year with praise.

  6. Sometimes we forget to appreciate what we have. We should indeed be thankful that we live in a place where there is no war and enough food.
