Thank You for Your creation. 

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1

Thank You for being such a loving heavenly Father and sending Your only Son that we might be saved.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.  John 3:16

Thank You for forgiving our sins and failures.

As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our wrongdoings from us. Psalm 103:12

Thank You for grace.

. . .through whom we have received grace and apostleship to bring about the obedience of faith among all the Gentiles in behalf of His name.  Romans 1:5  

Thank You that You are a righteous judge.

. . .in the future there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day; and not only to me, but also to all who have loved His appearing.  2 Timothy 4:8

Thank You for the provision of truth in Your Word and providing the Holy Spirit to teach and guide us. 

All Scripture is inspired by God and beneficial for teaching, for rebuke, for correction, for training in righteousness.  2 Timothy 3:16

Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”  Acts 2:38 

Thank You for sheltering, watching over, and protecting us even while we sleep.

In peace I will both lie down and sleep, for You alone, LORD, have me dwell in safety.  Psalm 4:8

Thank You for providing Your strength when we are weak.  

He gives strength to the weary, and to the one who lacks might He increases power.  Isaiah 40:29

Thank You for access to You through prayer. 

Call to me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know.  Jeremiah 33:3

Even though we do not know what the future holds, we can know You, the Almighty God who holds the future. Help us to stay strong and courageous in a world of social unrest and media bombardment. May we strive to know You more and stay strong in our faith.

For what are you thankful???
