The “T” in ACTS stands for thanks. I bet you can think of the one holiday when it’s easy to remember to thank God for his blessings. Thats right, Thanksgiving! Did you know that we’re supposed to have Thanksgiving all year long? That’s right everyday should be Thanksgiving, with or without the turkey and dressing! Is it easy to forget to thank God on regular basis. One way to remember is to use a payer journal. Start by taking a notebook , journal, or even a piece of paper would do fine and make a list of the things you are thankful for, Like your church, your friends, your home, ect… If you can’t think of anything , you should always be thankful for God’s son, Jesus, who died on the cross for you. With all that we have been blessed with we should have no problem thinking of things to thank God for. In addition to thanking God for the blessings he has given us , we should also thank Him for answering our prayers. Begin by taking that same prayer journal, notebook, and divide the pages into two columns. In one column, list you prayer request and in the other column mark how and when the prayer was answered, even if the answer was “no”!
1 Thessalonians 5:18
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Almost there! Just the “S” left! Come join us later in the week to complete our series! 🙂
