Each day is good for Thanksgiving

To God be the glory. In this article, I am delighted to write about just simply being thankful again this Thanksgiving season.

As I always say in the articles the Holy Spirit helps me to write, we have so much to be thankful for. I am truly honored to be able to write words to encourage somebody.

In spite of whatever we may be going through, the Lord will give us a peace of mind through it all. So during this Thanksgiving season, let’s count our blessings and be thankful like we always do.

“Oh give thanks unto the Lord for his mercy endured forever,” Psalm 118, Verse 1 says. All of us should be living with an attitude of gratitude.

Be thankful. Even in little, simple things, we should always be thankful. For instance, when I go to the service station and put gas in my car and it goes over the amount where I need a penny, like $20.01 or $20.02, and I look down and there is a penny or two, I pick it up and say, “Lord, I thank you.”

So we thank God for this holiday season event where we all get together with our families and friends and in retrospect and looking back over our lives and counting our blessings.

Also, how God causes the wind to blow the trees to give us the oxygen to breathe, what a mighty God we give thanks to.

So as I come to the end of this article, every day is a day of Thanksgiving. So, Lord Jesus, we thank you for salvation, food, clothing, shelter and for every thing that you bless us with everyday.
