Can you believe it? Autumn is almost at the halfway point, Halloween is behind us, Thanksgiving is just days away and we won't even mention how close Christmas is! For all of us in the Sandwich Generation juggling the issues of caring for the elderly parents and helping with the grandkids, that might add an extra inch or so of stress to our already overloaded lives! So what should we do in the midst of all this crazy business? STOP for a second and BE THANKFUL! Or if we can't stop – be thankful that we can thank God as we are on the run! 🙂 Notice how Colossians 3:15-17 interweaves thankfulness to God throughout all the daily doings:
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body; and be thankful. Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father.
Tis the season to remember we should ALWAYS be giving thanks, no matter what, to our ALMIGHTY GOD Who has promised us Romans 8:28, "We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose." Isn't that wonderfully encouraging! And what better way to prepare for Thanksgiving than to use these verses in Bible memory verses activities for grandparents and grandchildren? 🙂
Have a blessed and thankful Word-filled Wednesday for the Sandwich Generation, full of encouraging Bible verses. And speaking of encouraging, be sure to visit Internet Cafe Devotions for even more uplifting Bible verses to give thanks for!
