Someone told me years ago that thinkfulness is thankfulness. It’s true, and I’ve never forgotten it.
When I pause to ponder the goodness of God, it brings thankfulness to my heart. When I ponder unfinished tasks and looming deadlines, gratitude escapes.

I encourage you today to give thanks to your everlastingly good God.
O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms. For the LORD is a great God, and a great King above all gods.—Psalm 95:1–3
And know that out here in the high desert of Southern California there is a pastor who is thankful for you and your faithfulness to Christ, and who is praying that today you’ll know all the richest blessings of Jesus Christ your Lord and Saviour.
