"Thankfulness is the bridge
between what we have and what we want."

November 11, 2023

Good morning, Brothers and Sisters! I'm so thankful for this beautiful day and the opportunity to join together in worship.

This morning I want to talk to you about thankfulness and how it is the bridge between what we have and what we want. To illustrate this point, let me tell you a story about Lucy.

Lucy was a hardworking single mom of three young kids. Every day she woke up before the sun and worked two jobs, trying to make ends meet. But despite her hard work, she still felt she was getting nowhere. She was filled with worry and fear, and she couldn't see a way out of her struggles.

Then one day, as Lucy was walking home from work, she tripped over a rock in the road. Suddenly the rock opened up, revealing a bridge with a light at the end of it. Intrigued, Lucy stepped on the bridge and began walking towards the light. As she walked, Lucy noticed that the bridge was made of thankfulness - for the people in her life who had helped her, for the moments of joy she had experienced, for the hardships that had made her stronger.

By the time Lucy reached the end of the bridge, she had gained a new perspective on her life. She realized that thankfulness was the bridge between what she had and what she wanted. She saw that every step forward was an opportunity to be grateful for something new.

Brothers and Sisters, thankfulness is the bridge between what we have and what we want. Here are three key points to remember:

First, thankfulness opens up new possibilities. When we are thankful for the little things in life, we open our hearts to new possibilities and new opportunities. The bible says in Colossians 3:15, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.”

Second, thankfulness helps us appreciate our blessings. It can be easy to take things for granted, but when we practice thankfulness, we can appreciate all of our blessings - big and small. The bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:18, “Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”

Third, thankfulness gives us strength to keep going. When we are thankful for all of our blessings, we gain strength to keep going. The bible says in Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through him who strengthens me.”

Brothers and Sisters, thankfulness is the bridge between what we have and what we want. Let us remember this as we go out into the world today: Thankfulness is not just about appreciating our blessings - it’s about how we use them to make our lives better.

So let us always remember: Thankfulness is the bridge between what we have and what we want!
