Dogwood District Fall Meeting Devotion by Guest Blogger P.K. Henry

First Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you”

Offering a morning prayer of thanks is an incredible way to start the day. God, the giver of life, allows each of us to wake up to new beauties each day, so it’s important that we turn to Him and offer up our gratitude.

In these times of uncertainty and contentiousness, let’s begin each day with appreciation for what we have.
