1 Thessalonians 5:18 tells us to give thanks in all circumstances. Although scripture instructs us to live with thankful hearts, some times of the year tend to turn our minds more than usual toward thanksgiving. For me, the start of a new year is such a time.
I enjoy looking over the previous year, recalling what God has done that I'm thankful for - kind of like how Joshua had 12 men take stones from the middle of the dried-up Jordan riverbed to create a memorial to what God had done in getting them into the Promised Land (Joshua 4).
So, here are a few of my "stones of remembrance" for 2017 - things God has done or experiences he has given me that I'm thankful for:
I'm sure I'm forgetting many things - but wanted to acknowledge publicly some of the blessings from God that I'm thankful for over 2017.
How about you? Has God brought an unexpected blessing? Brought you through a difficult situation? Revealed himself to you in new ways? What are you thankful for in 2017?
