Verse of the Day:  1 Chronicles 29:13

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?

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 8:  Thankful for Praise and Worship Music

1 11-21 1 Psalm 95 2.jpg

 

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 95:2

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.

 

Today I am incredibly thankful for worship music and songs. Being able to praise and worship God through song is so uplifting and inspiring. No matter what is going on in my life at that moment, good, bad, indifferent it all just seem to melt away instantly as I begin to focus on God. I feel connected to my Savior, so grateful for His love and mercy and thankful for His presence in my life.  Although I am not gifted with vocal talents, it doesn’t stop me from appreciating those who are and it doesn’t stop me from singing my heart out to the Lord.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 6: Thankful for Spiritual Freedom

1 11-19 1 Psalms 100 4

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 100:4

Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

 

I am thankful for the freedom to be able to enter into the house of the Lord to praise and worship my Lord and Savior.  Yes, we have a constitutionally protected right to religious freedom and that’s great, but I’m talking about the spiritual freedom we received when Jesus died on the cross and paid the price for our sins.  I’m talking about abiding in God’s truth which has set us free from a life of sin and death.  Because of God’s love and mercy, we can have a relationship with Him, we can come into His presence to praise and worship Him and for that I am thankful.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 3: Thankful for Another Day of Life

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 106:1

Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.

 

God is good all the time and all the time God is good.  I woke up this morning, but not everyone did, so I am grateful for another day of life.  No matter what is going on in your life there is always something to be thankful for.  I’m thankful for God’s love and mercy.  I’m thankful He never gave up on me even when I didn’t deserve another chance.  Life is a precious gift from God and I’m going to be the best me I can be and live my life for Jesus.

10 Days of Thanksgiving – Day 1: Thankful for All God’s Wonderful Deeds

1 11-14 1 Psalm 9 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 9:1

I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart; I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

 

Thanksgiving Day is quickly approaching and I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I am thankful for.  Today I want to share that I am thankful for my relationship with the Lord and for His amazing grace.  Because of His mercy and forgiveness, I am no longer the same. My heart is filled with gratitude and praise for all the things He has done and continues to do in my life.  He has renewed my spirit and because of this I want to share His goodness with the world.

Draw Near to God

1 9-22 1

 

Verse of the Day: James 4:8a

Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.

 

We all need God in our lives, but how do you “draw near to God”?  You draw near to him through prayer, praise and worship.  You need to take the first step by inviting him into your life and start to experience his goodness for yourself.

Thankful

1 9-15 1

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 30:12

To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

 

We have so much to be thankful for.  Even if our lives are not perfect, even if we have troubles, we still have so much to be thankful for.  No matter what is going on in our lives, there is always something to be thankful for.   God is good, take time right now to thank him for all the good in your life.
