Practical Living: Turn Arounds, Part 5 – Give Thanks (#861)

Practical Living: Turn Arounds, Part 5 – Give Thanks (#861)
Today we’ll continue our series on turnarounds.    In our studies on turn arounds, up to this point, we’ve been looking at specific people and records (e.g. Rahab, Ruth, Ahab, Elijah, etc.).  Today’s teaching will focus on thanksgiving.  It is fitting we cover this now, since most Americans will soon celebrate Thanksgiving.  I’ve found in my biblical studies and in life experience that stopping to give thanks to God for what He has already done is one of the greatest keys to turnarounds in life and also builds confidence.
