Most of us live busy, hectic lives. Ministry can be that way. Sometimes exhilarating, sometimes exhausting... many of us don't take time to contemplate just how good we have it.
If you're in a great place in ministry this Thanksgiving season, the consideration of all you have to be thankful for might come easy.
On the other hand, if you're living out a very challenging ministry scenario, this introspection might be a little more difficult.
But either way, you have MUCH to be thankful for. Even if in trying times.
Watch this video. It was created by Forest Hill Church in Charlotte, NC and has been going viral this past week for good reason:
What do YOU have to be thankful for this year that you've taken for granted?
Today would be a great day to take out a piece of paper and list ten of them.
My guess is that by taking five minutes to write them out, it may very well change the way you celebrate Thanksgiving this year.
