Power of Thanks

Power of Thanks

 

I had the fun job of setting up a prayer room each day for our church’s Vacation Bible School. Over 100 children from preschool up to grade 4 and over 30 leaders (teens and adults) a day went through.

One of the prayer room activities was to brainstorm things they were thankful for.

If you’re looking for ways to connect with God, the Creator and Sustainer of life, and the One from who every good gift comes (James 1:17) then you could thank HIm. Seriously, thank God for all the blessings and the gifts He has put into your life.

It’s a list that could go on for a long time and the more you realize there is the more thankful you will be and the better your connection with God. Try it!

So with the Vacation Bible School crew, we asked,

“What are you thankful for?”

Heavy sigh. That list is so awesome and the kids who came up with it are too! I’ve got to be thankful for them.

And, btw, I’m thankful for you, dear reader. God bless you today!
