No, you did not read the above title wrong. I know today is Friday and yesterday was Thursday, but I wanted to share with you a little bit about Operation We Are Here‘s “Thankful Thursday.”
I had never heard of it until the founder – Benita Koeman emailed me and asked me if I would participate. I started searching their Facebook page and looking for previous “Thankful Thursdays” and also found a whole board of them on their Pinterest page. After reading through more than several and coming away encouraged and feeling blessed, I was ready to prepare mine.
When it was posted, Benita choose these encouraging words to go with it:
“On this Thankful Thursday the words from “10,000 Reasons” by Matt Redman come to mind, “The sun comes up, it’s a new day dawning, It’s time to sing Your song again, Whatever may pass, and whatever lies before me, Let me be singing when the evening comes.”
Is your heart singing today? Are you able to find a reason to thank God for, even if it’s been a really tough day? You may not be able to find 10,000 reasons, but perhaps you can try for three?
Feel free to share 3 things you’re thankful for today, or share a song that lifts your heart when you’re facing hardship.”
This exercise was such a great reminder to me, of all the blessings I have. Even on the hardest, most stressful, and tiring days there are so many blessings. I just have to open my eyes and see them. What are YOU thankful for today?
