What are You thankful for?

Here we are on day 2 of our 21Days of Gratitude

In Romans 1:21-25, Paul writes about what happens when we don’t glorify God or give thanks to him. The first thing he says it that  thinking becomes futile.

When I read this, I’m reminded that when I’m not thankful, I start to look at the bad stuff in my life and worry about it. Worry is futile thinking! Mark Philps said at staff retreat last week ‘we live under the illusion that if we worry, we’ve got it under control.’ The reality is that we can never control anything by worrying about it. As you choose to be thankful today, give your worries back to God and let him be in control again.
