ChoAs Thanksgiving approaches, I would like to share my seven reasons to be thankful to God this year, to encourage you to find your reasons to be thankful.

1. I truly thank God because he saved my life when my convoy was ambushed during our mission in Afghanistan.

2. I thank God for taking care of my family while I was deployed.

3. I am thankful to God that my family and I have gotten the opportunity to live on this beautiful island for more than three years.

4. I also want to thank God for my family’s health and protection this year.

5. I thank God for giving me strength and the ability to go to work every day, to serve our great Soldiers and their families.

6. I give thanks for my wife. God blessed my life with my lovely wife. I love to show her respect because she is a beautiful and wonderful woman and an amazing mother.

7. I truly thank God that I belong to him and his kingdom. I love to engage in fellowship with him through prayer, reading his word and praising him. I truly thank God for using me as his servant for almost 33 years. The Holy Bible says to “give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus,” (1 Thessalonians 5:18).

You may be going through tough times now, but remember that God is still in control of your life. Never give up on  your marriage, health, children or any circumstance you are going through.

Dear God, I pray for all our great Soldiers and their wonderful families. Almighty God, if their lives are going well, please continue to bless them, but if they are facing hard times, please give them strength, guide them and remind them they are not alone.
