Thankful for THAT?!

HI! How are all of you girls doing today? Sorry I haven't posted in a while! Today I wanted to wrap up our thankful study by talking about the 'Oh, Brother' side of being thankful! Know what I mean? Let me explain...

We all know there are some things we aren't exactly gung-ho about being thankful for (like sin, mean kids at school, or your annoying little brother or older bossy sis). But you know what? We can be thankful for those things. Think about it. Without sin in the world, we wouldn't have a choice of whether we wanted Jesus or not. We'd be like robots, obeying God's every command and loving Him when He said so. Sound fun to you? No, right? I'm not saying we should be thankful that our little sib hits us, the kids we babysit are disobedient, or someone curses on a TV show. I'm saying that we should be thankful that God has given us a choice of salvation. It's awesome He cares so much about us, huh?

When you think about, there are lots to be thankful for that you didn't think of before (stuff that makes you want to groan, plug your ears, cover your eyes, or whatever). As I wrap up today's thankful study, you can post about something you're thankful for that might not always bring a smile to your face. To start, I'll say that I'm thankful for my siblings (although they do annoy me sometimes ☺), God's gift of letting us choose salvation, and discipline (which can totally help us if it's meant for us to learn a VERY important lesson).

Check out these awesome Bible verses (NKJV):

Psalm 92:1 333

It is good to give thanks to the Lord, And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High.

Psalm 105:1 333

Oh, give thanks to the Lord! Call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples!

Psalm 107:1 333

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever!
