Good Morning and Happy Tuesday!!! Look at me, all oversleeping :/. I am so sorry! How are you, this fine day? October is coming to a close. How time does fly! There is something so exciting about NEW things, yes?
Thanksgiving.................. A time for GIVING THANKS! 1 Thessalonians 5:18 says it best, "Give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus." One more Scripture I love is 1 Chronicles 16:34, "Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever." There are tons of Scriptures on being THANKFUL. Note these 2 that tell us to GIVE THANKS, and then WHY we should.
Being Thankful does so much for us!!! It opens the door for God's Favor and Blessings! The very fact that Jesus died for us, is enough to keep us Thankful for the rest of our lives! Also, God's Grace is enough! The problem we have, is that we are not content with WHAT WE HAVE. The world always keeps us wanting more of the empty, worthless things it serves up! Paul tells us in Philippiand 4:11, "For I have learned to be content whatever the circumstance." I don't know about you, but I have a long way to go!!!
Only the things of God will REMAIN. Only the things of God are Good and True. He IS the Best, and wants to give His Children His Best! His ULTIMATE BEST IS HEAVEN.............. So, what the heck is wrong with us??? We need to SNAP OUT OF IT. We have a Father Who will never leave us. He will never walk away when we are weak. He will never let us veer or stumble. He will never forget our name or our Purpose.
Afterall, He DID think us up in His Heart, and Breathed us into Life. He set our feet into motion. Our hearts to dancing. He made a way for us to come to Him, through Jesus. And, if we take the SIDE OF GOD, we will spend all Eternity with Him.......... So YES, it is certainly worth being Thankful. "Oh, GOD, give me a Grateful and Undivided heart. Keep me from sinning against You today. Give me a Pure heart and motives. Thank You for loving me as only YOU can. And most of all, let me love like YOU LOVE!!!"
