12 Quotes on Being Thankful

November brings a chill to the air. Falling leaves, colder weather, apple cider, and Thanksgiving. As the seasons change in the natural and the spiritual, I have to remind myself to be thankful and enjoy the journey. It has not been an easy year for myself and my family. There have been many challenges. Yet through them all, God has been faithful and true. He is with us in the fire of affliction, just like He was with those 3 boys Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego.

So today,  let’ s take a moment to stop, breathe, and trust God – and thank Him for never leaving us. God is with us! We will make it through this!

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” – Philippians 4:6-7 NKJV
