Giving Thanks

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

We should always be giving thanks to God. In good times and bad.  When we give thanks there are three things that happen:

1.  It shrinks our thoughts of ourselves

2. It grows our love for God

3. It grows our love for others.

This was a repeat of the very first workout at the Cockpit.  Two months ago I posted for the first time and this workout kicked my butt.  I was extremely sore for the next several days.  Matter of fact, for my first three weeks of F3, I was in a constant state of soreness.  But now I’m getting better and that is what it is all about.
