    I will never get tired of saying it!

    God is good on the mountain and in the valley!

    What are you thankful for?

    NASB (emphasis mine)
    Rom 8:28 And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
    Rom 8:29 For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren;
    Rom 8:30 and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.

    John 15 calls God the vinedresser who prunes us so we bear more fruit and bring Him glory. It is a painful process but it is for my good and His glory and therefore I am thankful for it.

    I've tried lately just to be more thankful for the smaller things in life. Just simple things that I used to take for granted. Like a night out with my wife grocery shopping, instead of complaining about the crowds or food prices, just enjoy spending time with my wife and being thankful for God's provision.

    What am I thankful for? A few off the top pf my head-
    - My Dear Wifey, who is perfect in every way.
    - A mother who prayed for me.
    - A godly grandfather who always had time to mentor me.
    - An answered prayer.
    - Wisdom when I have needed it.
    - A sense of my own mortality gained as a young man, and the appreciation of life it gives.
    - The Country in which I live.

    There is much more...

    I am thankful for so much. WAY to much to even list but the biggest thing is that the Creator of the universe, the infinite God actually loves me and listens to my cry! That is just unfathomable!

    Oh come let us sing to the Lord
    Let us make a joyful noise to the God of our salvation
    Let us come with Thanksgiving

    For the Lord is great God
    And a great King above all gods
    In His hands are the depths of the earth
    And the heights of the mountains are His
    The sea is His
    For He made it
    And His hand formed the dry land
