Thank You for the chores
Lord, thank You for this sink of dirty dishes; we have plenty of good food to eat. Thank You for this big pile of dirty clothes; we have them to wear. Thank You for these unmade beds; they were all comfortable last night. Thank You for this finger-smudged refrigerator that desperately needs cleaning; it has served us faithfully for a long time. Our family is grateful for the tall grass that needs mowing; we all enjoy our private yard. Thank You for that slamming door; the children are healthy and able to run and play. Lord, the presence of all the chores awaiting me says that You have richly blessed this family. I shall do them all gratefully. (FBCCR bulletin - Sunday, November 24, 2019)
God's Word tells us to be thankful all the time:
"in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you" (1 Thessalonians 5:18).
