Stop to thank God for His blessingsPublished 12:01am Thursday, November 22, 2012
As we prepare for this Thanksgiving season, thank the good Lord that we can reflect and look back over our lives. Thank Him for his many blessings, because God has been good to us.
I would like to take this time out and thank the good Lord for letting us live to see another day and a day of Thanksgiving, because every day is a day of giving thanks.
Thank the Lord for your belief in Him. So together, let’s count our blessings in the true spirit of Thanksgiving, just as we rejoice in Jesus’s birth, for that is the true spirit of Christmas.
Even as Thanksgiving has arrived, each of our hearts truly should feel a rebirth of deep thankfulness to the Lord, a greater awareness of the good things He has bestowed upon us all.
Think of how often we tell the Lord about our needs, then think of how often we thank the Lord for his many blessings.
Be thankful thankfulness opens our hearts to God and changes our countenance and attitude.
When we are thankful, we look, we feel and we think differently. With a thankful heart it’s more difficult to be doubtful or discouraged, worried or afraid. Thankfulness erases that from your mind.
So as we sit around the dinner table and hold hands and bless the food that God has given us, we are thankful.
So to God be the glory.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving, and don’t forget to reach out and help someone that doesn’t have food to eat who is less fortunate.
