I just wanted to wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving!! I hope that no matter what kind of circumstances your going through right now, that you will take time today to reflect on everything that God has done for you, and know that no matter what, God will hold you together, and bring you through.
Thanksgiving is a time to thank God for everything that God has done for us, and I know that all of us who are in Christ can thank Him for many things that the He has done, even in the midst of trials. If you are in Christ, and can't find one thing to be thankful this Thanksgiving, I truly feel sorry for you, because we have the most wonderful gift that God has given us to be thankful for-eternal life!! And that is something that, if you are in Christ, even in the valley, you can give thanks to God.
So, I challenge you..... if you are in the dumps (if you will allow to put it that way!!-), find something to be thankful for, and ask God to bring to your remembrance things that he has done for you..... God desires that you would praise Him!! And for those of you who are thanking God for bring you through a trial, or God has been blessing you, set a time before this day is done to praise God for EVERYTHING He has done for you!! And I don't mean, "And thank you for everything that You have done for us, and for you grace," and I'm not making fun of anyone...... but try to be specific in what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving!! God continues to bless us in so many way even when we don't deserve it, and we ought to be the most thankful people on the face of the earth!! =)
"Enter into His gate with thanksgiving, and into His courts with praise: be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good; His mercy is everlasting; and His truth endures to ALL generations." ~Psalm 100:4,5
