In the world we live in today it seems like we can find more problems than blessings.  We complain about politics, about people, our health problems, personal problems, job, church, anything and everything.  We use so much energy to complain and find problems.  Do you realize that there are people that find something to complain about or just look for trouble? What if we use that amount of energy as we use to complain and counted our blessings? We are approaching Thanksgiving and there are many things to be thankful for.  So let's look at some of the things to be thankful for.  If you have a job be thankful that you have a job because there are some they can't work due to health reasons or other reasons.  If you are retired be thankful that God allowed you to work for all those years so you can enjoy retirement. If you are having money problems which in the days we are living in that is a lot of folks.  Be thankful that you do have money to have problems with because there are some that don't have any money. 


If you have a family or friends that you complain about be thankful that you have family and friends because there are many that don't have family or even a friend.  If you complain about politics be thankful that you live in the greatest country in the world to be able to have freedom to complain because there are many countries that don't have the freedom we do.  One more and that is be thankful for Jesus, be thankful that He gave His life for me and you so we would have a choice to accept Him so we wouldn't have to face eternal separation from Him.  Be thankful that Jesus loves us for all our mistakes, for all our failures, for all our sin.  My dear friends that is something to be very thankful for.  May you and your family have a wonderful thanksgiving.  


Love Pastor Mike
