Colossians 2:6-7

“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.”

I really try to live my live in him, and have developed deep roots and have become well established in the faith. But sometimes I forget to abound. So, I think it’d be nice to abound a bit together.

What are you thankful for?

Me? I’m thankful for the beauty of nature I can sit amidst today, inspiring and renewing. I’m thankful for diversity of thinking that we all bring to God, all of us taught by God and able to bring a distinct piece to conversations, making learning about our savior always a potluck. I’m thankful God has called me to be his, even as sometimes I feel this to be more of a weight, I know that there is a freedom that cannot be matched and which is leading me to something so wonderful in knowing him ever better.

I’m thankful for my family and my friends, who support me and encourage me and who help me refocus as I should. I’m thankful for the internet, where I’ve met amazing friends, people who have been more encouraging, enlightening, and close than I could have ever imagined.

I’m thankful for God’s work in ways I can’t even see, for how he’s moving and shaping and guiding.

God is good. May I abound in thanksgiving!
