Thankfulness is a gift we give ourselves.
Why be Grateful?
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, now is an ideal time to revisit our reasons for gratitude.
I’m thankful for the God we serve, a merciful God Who loves us no matter what mistakes we make and who rejoices in what we try to do to please Him.
I’m grateful for the people in my life and that the Lord meets my needs and beyond. That’s only a start. If I were to compose a list, this blog post would be so long that no one would read it.
I’ve taken a break from social media, and now I’ll try to be more active by sharing helpful and uplifting posts. Since, as industry professionals, we’re all on social media, I’ll dedicate the rest of this gratitude post to Christians on social media.
Trusting Christian Writers
I’m grateful I can trust the writers I follow to offer God-honoring words I can safely post anywhere. My purpose in sharing articles is to inform and uplift, not to offend. I don’t need to add drama to my life by creating fights to send zingers to people who disagree with me. Negative engagement, especially with strangers online, is not about the issue or debaters. Disputes are about showing off with clever retorts. Here, winning is losing. That’s not how I want to spend my time. I respect you enough that I don’t ask you to spend your time fighting, either.
I’ll add how much I appreciate those who read this blog and follow me on social media. You make my little corner of the online world a lovely place to be.
May every day you live be a blessed and joyous celebration of gratitude.
