“Enter into His gates with Thanksgiving; give thanks to Him and praise His name” -Psalm 100:4
Normally when November 1st hits I join in the 30 days of thanks challenge. This year I just didn’t feel led. Years past my challenge would consist of worldly things that I was grateful and thankful for. But God convicted my heart and helped me really put things into perspective. So today on Thanksgiving I give thanks to my creator.
Not only is God my Lord and Savior of my eternity, He has been just that here on earth. When we give our lives to Christ we look back at the mess we were before. What we’ve been delivered from, healed from, and saved from. We could not have done that on our own. God is so faithful to rescue us in the midst of our sin, and so relentless to keep trying when trying when we push Him to the side to stay in that sin. All the while he waits for us with open arms.
God is so good; even in the bad in our lives. The Bible says,
“Give thanks IN ALL circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” -1 Thessalonians 5:18
In all things, and circumstances we should give thanks. God gives so much of who he is, the least I can do is be thankful and grateful for Him and the path he put me for for His will for me. He is worthy of that! Today I pray you all join me in thanking God for all He has done for us, starting at the cross. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Love and Blessings,
