This is always one of my favorite times of the year, I’m a huge Thanksgiving fan! I love everything about the holidays & this special day really kind of kicks it all off for me, plus I’m a big fan of food & because Thanksgiving gives us the reason to eat a lot of food that makes me happy too. As I think about all of what we have kind of come to know Thanksgiving to be about, you know the football games & Black Friday sales, I love all that stuff too, but I just want to stop & thank God for all the blessings in my life.

I’m kind of one of those people who tends to always focus on what’s ahead, maybe at times I’m more future minded than living in the present as most people are. Because I’m that way, I often times am looking for what’s coming or what’s going to happen instead of what has happened, so during this time of year I like to just kind of stop & look at all the things that have happened & how blessed I am. I look at all that God has done in my life & I can truly say I am more than blessed, God has been so so good to me.

I am so thankful for my amazing wife & family. God has given me such an awesome support system in my family, doing what I do isn’t always easy but I always have people praying for me & encouraging me & that means so much. My wife April & I have such a wonderful life together & I am so blessed to have her I couldn’t do my music & ministry without her constant help & support. God is always faithful to take care of us & supply our every need, I can look back & say there has NEVER been a time that God has let us down.

Sometimes it’s easy to focus on what we don’t have or instead of focusing on what’s went right for some reason people tend to focus on the negative, but I challenge you to look around with me today & see how blessed we are. There is a song I wrote a few years ago called “A Lot Of Things Right” it talks about how sometimes we see all the bad instead of the good but the song says this, “sure there’s a few things wrong, but there’s a lot of things right.” I believe when we look around that’s really how life is, there might be a few things wrong, but when we evaluate things in proper perspective there is a lot of things right in our life that we can be thankful for.

I never want to take for granted how good God is to me & my family. This week I am just praising God & thanking Him for all He has done in my life & all the He is doing. But it shouldn’t just be something we do on this one day or this one time of year, we need to learn to be thankful for God’s blessings in our life everyday & that is something I’m learning to do more & more as I go through life. I pray you & your family have a very Happy Thanksgiving & a wonderful holiday season!
