Hey guys! Summer's starting and I want to challenge you on something! :)
This summer, whether you're at the beach, visiting family, or just spending
all your time at the pool, I want to challenge you to give thanks for even the
The first part of the challenge is this:
When you see things like trees, clouds, and water, think about how God
graciously made all these things with so much detail, and still He easily
fit them together to complete His perfect plan. Take sand for instance.
First think of how many beaches God put in the world. Next think of how
many grains of sand are on each beach. Now think of how many molecules
are in each grain of sand. Amazing isn't it?! God cares so much!
The other part is this:
When you're thinking about those small things, pray and thank God for
blessing us with such wonderful creations. God Himself says to do so in
Psalm 100:4 "Enter into His gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts
with praise:be thankful unto him, and bless his name." After all, He
deserves it and much more!
So when you're jumpin' in the water or sittin' in the sand this summer,
don't forget to stop and thank God for all the wonderful blessings He's
given us! :)
