But God gave us a Spirit not of fear but of power and love and self control 2 Timothy 1:7
When we count our blessings, when we realize how much we have and how blessed we are. We can’t help, but to be thankful. As a husband, I am thankful when my wife does something for me. As a father, I am thankful when my kids do something for me. It’s in those moments that I realize how blessed I am.
This year I want to do better than that. I want to be thankful for the blessings God has given me and the blessings that I can’t see. The type of blessings that God gives me but that I can only see through faith.
God gave us the Holy Spirit when we were baptized. God gave us the unafraid Spirit ; a Spirit that has the power of God. The power to love, the power to exercise self control. God has given us a part of himself. For that we should be thankful as well.
