Turn your eyes upon Jesus

Many people's lists of things to be thankful for have shrunk this year. The evidence of God's faithfulness in our lives may be obscured by temporary setbacks or the illusion of defeat...but as Christians, we can be thankful for our blessings, not our circumstances.

True gratitude comes from recognizing the permanence of God's character. Happiness is fragile and fleeting; joy results from the Spirit abiding within. The circumstances of the world will fade away when you tap into that joy--the mindset in which you are conscious of the blessings bestowed on you through Christ, from everlasting to everlasting.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving break!

Thanks so much for writing these devos. They are such an encouragement to me. They are short and to the point and I love receiving just the word I seem to need at the right time. God is so good! Thanks for obeying Him and writing the devos.

Also, I love my ebook Cornerstone For Teachers. It has revolutionized my classroom! :)
