Thanking God for Real Change

Oct 30, 2019 4:15:21 PM

During November, a lot of people take time to reflect on gratitude. We see our friends making daily social media posts expressing specific things they are thankful for.

As followers of Christ, our gratitude is even richer:

We know the Person responsible. Every day, we experience the gifts of grace and salvation. We see His hand in the details of our lives - relationships, true meaning and deep joy. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows” (James 1:17).

We have far too much to be thankful for to keep it to one month of the year. I don’t have room to list every good and perfect gift God has given me. But it’s easy for me to look around UGM and be thankful for the lives He has transformed. Here are just a few.
