Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you.
If you are blessed to still have your mother in your life honor her as the Lord commands. Be devoted and respectful, affectionate and loving for she won’t always be here. If there are grievances between you ask God to help you forgive each other. If you are blessed to be a mother, pray that you would be a good example for your children and that they would honor you in the same way you have honored your own mother.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
God is good and every gift from him is good and perfect. Think about all good in your life, your job, your home, your family, and know it’s all a gift from God. Think about the spiritual gifts you’ve been given, they too are a gift from God. Now think about the greatest gift of all, the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ, they all come from our heavenly Father. As we go through this holiday season let’s not forget what it’s really about and remember to be grateful for all the gifts from above.
But you, O Lord, are a shield about me, my glory, and the lifter of my head.
Thanksgiving Day is over and not everyone has or was able to spend time with family and friends. For some, the holidays can be lonely and even a sad time. I sometimes feel it too. I miss loved ones that have passed and those who can’t be near me. But we are not alone, God is with us in every moment of every day. If we focus on the Lord, his goodness, and our blessings He will get us through it.
Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name.
I want to wish you all a happy and blessed Thanksgiving! Over the past few days I’ve shared with you some of the things I’m thankful for but there are so many I would never be able to express them all. As we give thanks to our Lord on this day let’s remember that He is good all the time and we should be thankful every day of the year. May God bless you today and always.
Today I’m thankful I’m able to spend time with my wonderful husband, family and friends who are such a blessing to my life. What are you thankful for?
We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters, and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing.
I am thankful for the love of family and friends. I’m grateful to have such wonderful people as part of my journey. Each person God has put in my life adds something unique and special to it and I love and appreciate them all. I’m thankful for the love we share between us, for the experiences we go through together and for the memories that will be in my heart forever. As I thank God for you I pray that He would continue to bless and protect you always.
I urge you first of all, to pray for all people. Ask God to help them, intercede on their behalf, and give thanks for them.
Take time to pray for your family, your friends, your co-workers, your neighbors and while you’re at it, pray for your enemies as well. We don’t always know what they are going through but one thing is for sure, they can always use our prayers.
Every child is a blessing and a gift from God, unique and special in their own way. It is up to us to guide and protect them and to teach them the ways of the Lord. Inspire and encourage your children by being an example of what it is to be a child of God. Pray for your children and ask God to bless them and don’t forget to thank the Lord for this special blessing.
