Waking up this morning to central heat is wonderful. We have a fireplace and we can use it. But modern conveniences are such a gift.
Oh beloved it’s so cold outside. But we have much to be thankful for. From the heat in our homes to the cats in our driveways we are blessed. But we don’t take anything for granted do we? We wake up thankful! Thankful for God’s gifts to us. Thankful for the ability to use those gifts. Thankful even for the opportunities to work so that we can give to the Lord, pay our bills and plan some fun.
God says this morning that every one of the perfect gifts of life you have comes from Him. Before the foundation of the world He set blessings in motion for you. You weren’t born of your own plans. You haven’t been born again to continue living for yourself. It’s much more wonderful than that! You get to live in His Light and even when you have hard moments days or times- you get to praise God for waking up and overcoming all obstacles!
God loves you and He’s for you. He knows the temperature you’re going out into this morning and He knows you have within you the fire of heaven to warm your mind and heart all the way! Thankfulness surrounds you as you pour out your praise for this day is a gift and you have purpose in Him!
