Attitude of Gratitude

The end of the calendar year is fondly referred to as the “most wonderful time of the year,” and is traditionally a season for spending time with loved ones and reflecting on your blessings. However, it may not always be easy to express gratitude after troubling times. Here are a few reminders as to why you should be thankful during this holiday season.

Remember What God Has Done
“Be careful that you do not forget the LORD your God” (Deuteronomy 8:11)
He has created a world with variety and beauty. God has given us a magnificent world and, although we each experience difficulties, it is up to us to walk through life with our heads held high. He has provided, and we should remember His sacrifices and love.

God Has A Plan
“Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever” (1 Chronicles 16:34, NIV)
During challenging times it can be hard to remember to think positively. Remind yourself that everything is part of His plan, and He never gives you more than you can handle. Everything you experience has a purpose, so maintain your faith and trust in Him.

You’ve Been Given the Greatest Gift
“Each day is a gift from God. What you do with it is your gift to Him.” – T.D. Jakes
The pandemic has shown that tomorrow is not guaranteed. More than ever before, we should each be grateful for our health. He has given us life and now we must live it to the fullest in His name.

When Christian Business Men’s Connection was founded during the Great Depression, it was to bring together believers who were struggling individually. This year has brought forth many similarities, and it’s clear we need support from like-minded individuals who understand our desire to balance our work and faith. Connect with fellow Christians and share your experiences by becoming a member of CBMC.
