Pumpkins and a candle with the text the key to a happy thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful! Many life circumstances can make it difficult to ready your heart and mind for a day of thankfulness. What can you do to ensure a happy Thanksgiving?

Change your mindset. How good has God been to you this year? Psalm 107:1 instructs us to "give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!"

Focus on the Positive. Do not worry about tomorrow. "Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God." Philippians 4:6 

Rejoice in the Lord for the blessings you currently have in your life. Psalm 66: 1-2 tells believers to "shout with joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious! Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds!""

As you celebrate the thanksgiving holiday, take time to pray and thank God for all that He has done for you. Be sure to watch In Touch Ministries as Dr. Charles Stanley offers encourages us all to have a Happy Thanksgiving.
